Question: What does it mean to have "Mild Hearing Loss"
Answer: Having mild hearing loss and being deaf are very different. People with mild hearing loss CAN still hear, just not very well. When someone is whispering, or far away, or there is a lot of background noise, a person with mild hearing loss will be unable to hear another person talking. Untreated, mild hearing loss can lead to developmental issues in speech and language. Aryana was diagnosed at a very young age and was given hearing aids, so she is able to speak and hear just fine now.
