Being prepared for your evaluation will help you get the most out of it. Ask yourself, “How does hearing affect my life?” Have you noticed any challenges in your ability to hear and understand what is going on around you? If you could overcome these challenges, how would it improve your life? Now that you are preparing yourself mentally for your visit, why don’t you take some time to jot down the answers to a few questions.
- In which situations have you experienced challenges with your hearing?
- Has your hearing been frustrating you?
- Have your family members or friends said anything about your hearing?
