To a person who has difficulty hearing high frequencies, speech sounds muffled, and some consonants may be undetectable. Speech has a rolling cadence, with highs and lows; for people with hearing loss, those low parts can be unintelligible. Be patient — you may need to rephrase your words a few times. Think back to a time when you received a terse email from someone you knew, and you wondered if they were irritated with you. Emails cannot convey tone, so they are often the source of miscommunication.
Your mannerisms, facial expressions, and lip movements help people fill in the gaps — they may not hear everything you say, but they will be better able to understand your tone and your overall message. When you sign up for our monthly newsletter, you'll get tips on managing hearing loss, news about innovations in hearing device technology, and important updates about our practice.

I am sure she has many stories she could tell you. You should feel very proud to have done th. It is nice to read about so many of you learning to speak Italian so that you can have conversations with your Grandma! My grandfather came from Naples and did not speak Italian to his kids, I believe at that time most immigrants wanted their children to be completly American so most of the spoken language was lost, but luckily for us the traditional italian cooking and eating remained!
