Careers Working with the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing

According to the Hearing Health Foundation (HHF), one in five Americans have hearing loss in at least one ear and three out of every 1000 children are born deaf or hard of hearing.

Looking at these staggering statistics, it’s obvious why people with the skills to work with the deaf community are increasingly in demand.

From sign language interpreters and teachers to speech pathologists and audiologists, the range of occupations working with deaf and hard of hearing people is wide, and jobs in this field are readily available.
