SoundSpace Online

About Us

Thank you very much for taking the time to visit SoundSpace Online. This website came about during several meetings with those with hearing loss, their families and professionals. Sue Archbold and Connie Mayer had the idea to create a platform to provide easy access to quality, readable and usable information and resources for anyone related and/or interested in the field of hearing loss. So far, we have kindly received input from those with hearing loss, their families and friends, and experts in the field from different disciplines (e.g. education, audiology, e-learning, etc.), to whom we would like to say a big THANK YOU for your invaluable advice and support!
