I have been going deaf since being a child. Now I must use hearing aids. Can I be classified as disabled?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

You may need special consideration for various situations where hearing is important.
Classroom lectures, safety considerations for driving etc. There are regulations listed in the american disabilities act that may help. I would hope that you can find ways to be productive even though you are disabled.
