Who are HaLD?

We are a Special interest Group (SIG) for professionals who are interested in people with learning disabilities (PwLD) and hearing loss.

The SIG aims to:

  1. Raise awareness of the high prevalence of hearing loss in PwLD
  2. Improve the clinical practice of those working with PwLD who have hearing loss
  3. Increase the evidence base and knowledge around hearing loss and learning disabilities by coordinating projects, working groups, research and publications.

We are always looking for new members and project ideas and welcome any interest or suggestions.
