Amanda Watson lists highlights of the HLAA 2022 Convention, which is June 23-25 in Tampa, Florida. In A Saga of an Older Adult with Hearing Loss, Bruce L. Douglas shares how it has taken him almost his entire adult life to recognize that he never had normal hearing. In Better Speech Recognition with Vision, authors Lynne E. Bernstein, Edward T. Auer, Jr., Silvio P. Eberhardt and Nicole Jordan reveal how lipreading ability is not an inborn trait. Their research on adults who were deaf before learning language and who did not use cochlear implants has shown that most learned to be very good or excellent lipreaders. Finally, in his poem Silent Blessings, Kevin Medlin reveals how he appreciates silence as much as sound.
