Are family members complaining that the TV is too loud? Do you find yourself daydreaming more during meetings? Are you easily frustrated in group gatherings or large parties? About 1 in 9 people would answer, “Yes!” to all these questions.

DSDHH offers resources including free classes on Living with Hearing Loss, speech reading, coping strategies, information on technology and resources available. There are several Hard of Hearing Assistants providing free classes and information throughout the state.

Videos - May's Better Hearing and Speech Month

In May of each year, the Division of Services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing celebrate the Better Hearing and Speech Awareness month. It's an opportunity to raise awareness about people with hearing loss. 

These videos were produced with the local PBS affiliate in Minnesota about age-related hearing loss by the Commission of Deaf, Deafblind, and Hard of Hearing Minnesotans.
