The Seventh Volume in the Deaf Lives Series
From Reference & Research Book News
Thompson’s hearing loss was first detected when she was around 10 years old. For the last decade she has reported and written a column for the Suburban News Publications (she is based in Ohio). Combining reprinted columns with brand new narration, she tells the story of the years before and after her hearing declined (she later became completely deaf). She takes a lead-by-example approach by humorously advising hard of hearing readers on the importance of resilience in functioning in family, work, and artistic life through means such as hearing aids, FM systems, and guide dogs. Her life story includes a diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis, an interest and emerging career in writing poetry, and a recent cochlear implantation that restored 95% of her hearing.
Elizabeth Thompson writes and lives in Grove City, OH.
