    hearing aids not accepted in the Deaf community 20 years ago?!?!?

    Yeah but I meant as a hivemind mentality. i know there were SOME people who were anti HA, but overall the HA has been pretty much accepted in the Deaf community. 30-35 years ago I could see that. Maybe even as long as 40 years ago, b/c that was the edge of when HAs were introduced...

    how useful are hearing aids?
