“Hearing Aids Help Me” By Genevieve B., age 9
The day I got my hearing aids I realized how noisy my twin little brothers are. But I also found it was a lot easier to learn to read because I could hear the sounds the letters make, and now I really love to read. I thought it might be a big deal getting hearing aids, but my friends didn’t even really notice them. I know they’re expensive and I sometimes get nervous they’ll get wet or I’ll lose them. I don’t really like wearing them all the time, but when I do I really can hear better. But I live with three loud brothers, so I don’t want to hear better all the time.
