Anabaptist Disabilities: Network: Hearing and Deafness

A means of communicating with others is a fundamental need of all God’s children. Participation in communities of all kinds, including communities of faith, depends on our being able to communicate. Communities of faith risk losing the gifts of people with limited hearing unless the community pays special attention to accommodating their various needs. Accommodations that include people who have mild or moderate hearing loss differ significantly from those that benefit people who hear very little.
