Hearing From The Heart: Careers for the Hearing Impaired

A 1998 survey by the Canadian Association of the Deaf reported the unemployment rate for deaf and hard of hearing people is unacceptably high, with few employed in professions and fewer still in "high level" positions.Beethoven Hearing Loss

We don’t think hearing loss should stand in the way of dreams, and that’s why we encourage people to stop by for free hearing tests.

Despite the statistics deaf people, and individuals dealing with hearing loss, have managed to build exciting careers in unexpected and sometimes unusual fields. For example:

Musician:

Beethoven created nine symphonies, without ever hearing a note of his own music.

Movie Star:

Marlee Matlin is deaf, but that didn't stop her from winning an Academy Award for "Children of a Lesser God."

Police Officers:

The Montreal Gazette reports that in Oaxaca, Mexico, deaf police officers are playing a leading role in the war on crime by operating the city's surveillance cameras.

Circus Performer:

Sergey Shashelev, an original cast member of Cirque du Soleil's "La Nouba", told the Orlando Sentinel that he wanted to be a clown since he was eight years old, and he didn't let being deaf stop him.

The message to you — don’t let anything, or anyone, get in the way of your dreams.
