Abstract

Excerpt

The ability to communicate is fundamental to the human experience, allowing us to meet our educational and social needs, and yet it's not an unalienable right, In fact, it might seem as though communication is a privilege of the rich and insured – a true treasure. And looking for organizations to help in the purchasing of a hearing aid or trying to find a government program that you might be eligible for is much akin to a treasure hunt – but without a map. Well, here's the map you've been waiting for. We'll not only navigate the government programs and the nonprofit options, but also insurance and savings plans that can soften the impact of the purchase of a good set of digital hearing aids.
