This is an important shout-out to all my Australian readers with a hearing loss.
The Australian Federal Government has launched a full Senate Inquiry into deafness!
Is there anything about having a hearing loss or being deaf that frustrates you?
- Have you ever felt annoyed at the cost of buying – and maintaining – hearing aids and cochlear implants?
- Have you ever been upset by the low standard of services of an audiologist?
- Ever wished you could stay with Australian Hearing after you were 21 years old?
The Australian Federal Government want to hear from EVERYONE in Australia about what issues they face when they have to deal with a hearing loss.
They are planning on using your input to change the way hearing health is dealt with in Australia.
It is so important that you email them to let them know what it is like for YOU personally.
All you have to do is send a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9 October 2009, letting them know what frustrates you most about your hearing loss in Australia, and what you would like to change.
I have done one already. If you need help in knowing what to write, have a look here.
This is your chance to finally let your Government know how difficult it can be living with a hearing loss in a hearing world.
Don’t miss this chance.
