About Hearing and Vision and Other Sensory or Communication Disorders

Hearing and vision influence how Americans of all ages learn, communicate, work, play, and interact with the world — and they can have a tremendous impact on overall health and well-being. Yet millions of Americans live with sensory impairments, and many more are at risk for preventable diseases and injuries, such as falls due to balance problems. Even when they are temporary or mild, sensory disorders can affect both physical and mental health and compromise the ability to communicate with others.
