The literature review and the first author's experience in becoming a deafened adult were used to develop the interview schedule, which was then pretested with a late-deafened adult. The first author conducted all interviews.
Most commonly, it is the result of head injury, ototoxic medications, bilateral vestibular schwannomas (NF2), noise exposure, Meniere's syndrome, cochlear otosclerosis, or presbycusis.(3) Regardless of etiology, late-deafened adults share the experience of becoming deaf after once having normal hearing.
Thus, among the deaf population in the United States, late-deafened adults appear to be a distinct majority.
Late-deafened adults are unique in that their deafness carries no cultural identity.
An informal poll of late-deafened adults in four states indicates that service delivery from state VR agencies is less than satisfactory.
As a result of this gap in knowledge and training of providers, it often takes late-deafened adults years to learn about coping strategies, assistive technology, and their basic rights to communication access.
That evening was the genesis of what soon became the Association of Late-Deafened Adults (ALDA).
