The Hearing Loss Association of California publishes a quarterly newsletter, “The Hearing Loss Californian.” If you are a member of the Hearing Loss Association of America and join a chapter in California, you will automatically receive this newsletter. It is also available online: http://www.hearinglossca.org/newsletter . The Fall 2013 issue has an excellent list of books about hearing loss compiled by Bruce Harris from the HLA-East Bay Chapter.
I never knew there were so many books about hearing loss for children! Follow the link to Children’s Books in the last item of this list. Kay Powell has compiled a wonderful annotated bibliography with links to Amazon to purchase the books.
There is more than one page of books – be sure to notice the menu bar at the top:
Fiction Non-Fiction Sign Language Videos Misc.
These books are not just for children with hearing loss or children with a family member with hearing loss, but are excellent for increasing awareness of hearing loss and eliminating the stigma of wearing hearing aids – for any child or any classroom. If I were still teaching, I would definitely be adding to my library! In fact, I can hardly resist buying some now!
