The recent campaign was setup by two national hearing heath center networks Belsono Hearing Centers and Hearing Health USA. They are aware that hearing loss unfortunately can so often be associated with growing older and therefore a hearing aid can often be viewed as a symbol of old age, however this is not true. Healthcare professionals globally along side other similar campaigns believe it is time to break that old stigma and encourage wearers to flaunt their hearing aids!
Anyone can be affected by hearing loss, wearing a hearing aid will not cramp your style, it will liberate those who wish to wear their hearing aid with pride. Photos of many “flaunting their hearing aids” can be seen on the Hearing Health USA website and social media pages.
From now until the end of September hearing aid wearers are invited to participate by submitting photos on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram with the hashtag #FlauntYourHearingAids, or upload photos to the Website of either Hearing Health USA or Belsono.
All hearing aid devices can be photographed, not only digital hearing aids, but cochlear implant photos too. Take at look at these deaf children who have had hearing aids or cochlear implants for most of their lives. Their revealing headline 'Some people are shocked when I say I have a magnet in my head' shows how proud they are to “flaunt their hearing aids”.
Please take a few moments to watch their video, as there are some things you can remember to do in order to help communicate better during conversation, and take into consideration:

Deaf children give their advice about how you can help them understand better.
