Gail Wright Posted almost 3 years ago What is the future of social media in healthcare? I come from the education side. Kids (hearing and Deaf) are using social media as their mode of communication. The development of this barrier free communication/ connection is powerful for children with hearing loss. The connections with hearing peers is now seamless and easy. The ability for children with hearing loss who feel isolated and alone as they may be the only child in their school/ town with hearing loss is also a reality!
