A Hearing Loss & Late Deafened Blog

About Us

The SayWhatClub is an Internet-based support group, geared toward people in varying stages of hearing loss. We have been organized and incorporated since the mid 1990’s and serve a worldwide membership. The SayWhatClub has been a proven lifeline to those struggling with hearing loss in order to function in a hearing world to learn coping skills, job skills and acceptance. Here we find a whole family of people ‘just like us’ who share the feelings of isolations, the heartaches and, strangely, the joys of living with hearing loss.

Our members run the gamut from ‘mild’ to ‘profound’ and every level in between. We also welcome spouses, partners and friends who love us and wish to have a better understanding of our world.

We hope you will post your comments and opinions on our weblog. Please feel free to visit our website and consider joining us at www.saywhatclub.com. We’d be honored to welcome you to our far-flung but closeknit family. We are also now on Facebook and Twitter.

  2. Hi there,

    Congratulations on such a great blog; highly informative!
    I was wondering if you also allow for guest authors to provide content. If so, what is the procedure?

    Many thanks and best regards,

    – Patrick

  3. Very happy to see this interactive “SayWhatClub” as I’m more of an introvert due to my shyness and hearing challengments. Also it’s free and user friendly. It connects all of us on the same page! What about an interactive moving Braille for DB’s?
    Well Done!

  4. Excellent blog you got going on here! I can sympathise with the writers here since I too am deaf, profoundly since birth. Hearing aids never worked on me so that meant I was more deaf than even the “profoundly deaf” folks. I can also understand the frustration we encounter on a daily basis. I’m a little different than most deaf people since most of my friends are hearing and do not know sign language. My mother was a speech teacher so that did help in a lot of ways. I’m following you now via WordPress. 🙂

    • Richie, very few of the people in SWC sign. Most of us are either hearing impaired or late deafened. Our main language is oral communication and we all have hearing friends. Deaf with a capital D opposed to deaf with a small d are two different classifications. Do come join us on our main website at http://www.saywhatclub.com and join a group and do come visit our facebook: https://www.facebook.com/#!/SayWhatClub

      • Although I’m fluent in ASL, most of my friends are hearing because I still speak and none of my hearing friends sign. Will check out the website, thanks!
