This blog is on an indefinite hiatus. While I am finishing grad school, I am turning my attention to writing on other topics. Additionally, I have been elected to Vice President of the Board of Directors for ALDA Chicago and have chosen to be involved with planning ALDA Inc.'s next national convention.
Thank you for your interest in Speak Up Librarian.
All the best,

29 Year Old Woman Hears for the First Time
I saw a clip of this touching video on my local news today.
The Esteem hearing implant is designed for adults with moderately severe sensorineural hearing loss - exactly the type I have. To learn more about this option to hearing aids, click here.
I had never heard of it before today. Have you? On the website, there are stories of people implanted as far back as 2005.
Update: You can read Sarah Churman's story in her own words on her blog here.
