Q: Do all deaf people benefit from hearing aids?
A: No. It depends on the type of deafness, its severity, and the preference of the deaf person. Some people who are severely or profoundly deaf like to wear aids to give them more environmental awareness, even though they may not be able to participate in a spoken conversation. Others who are equally deaf dont wear aids at all, since they dont derive much benefit from them, dont feel comfortable, or simply dont want to bother with them. Deaf people can function quite nicely without aids. Its a matter of personal preference.
