What is #HearingLossHour?
#HearingLossHour is a live question and answer session on Twitter, for people with hearing loss. Each month, there is a different topic relating to hearing loss, and a facilitated discussion, tips, resources, and support.
When is it?
The first Tuesday of every month at 1pm (UK time).
If you’d like to be part of a closer discussion, you can also apply to be a Phonak hEARo.
What happens during #HearingLossHour?
Originally, #HearingLossHour was launched with the aim of helping people new to hearing loss, connecting them with others to give support and share experiences.
But, since its launch in 2015, it has become a community of people with all different types of hearing loss, some of whom have had hearing issues since birth, and others who are experiencing hearing loss for the first time right now.
Each month, there is a different theme for the discussion and 3 or 4 questions which come from the @HearingLossHour Twitter account. Everyone is invited to then tweet their answers and share their experiences, tips and support.
