Jobs for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Employment is an important factor in everyone’s life. Every citizen willing to work should have a job. A good satisfactory job at the right age. It makes the person independent. And results in a happy and satisfying family life. Dependence on others for a living lowers the self-esteem of the person. The deaf or the hard of hearing are no different. They have an equal right to employment suiting their ability.

This statement by Dr King Jordan sums up everything.

“Deaf People Can Do Anything Hearing People Can – Except Hear”

    • Hi,

      if you have a permanent hearing loss and it is more than 60 db in each ear, you can apply for a disability certificate. since you have a 51 db loss in one ear, you may not be eligible.
