deafness definition and meaning

What is "deafness"?

Deafness is a condition where a person lacks or has limited ability to hear sounds. It can vary in seriousness, from partial hearing loss to complete deafness. Deafness can be present from birth or develop later in life due to factors such as genetic conditions, infections, exposure to loud noises, or aging. Individuals who are deaf may use sign language, lip-reading, hearing aids, or cochlear implants to communicate and navigate their environment. Supportive services and resources, such as education programs and accessibility accommodations, can help individuals with deafness lead fulfilling lives.
