How did you find out about this site? Is your hearing loss genetic if it passed on to your daughter? You could probably check with your local deaf resources, or community to get educated on the matter if you're interested on how to adjust with it.
By the way, out of political correctness, the term deaf and hearing impaired are technically the same meaning. You do not need to have "stone deafness" to be considered deaf. Anyone with a decent and up loss can be classified as deaf, if they allow themselves to.
Right. Some of them consider themself HOH, or Deaf. Even though they have some hearing.
I do not use the term Hearing impaired either.
