Abstract

From the increasing number of requests being received by the Deafness Clinic (as many in the first three months of 1981 as in the whole of 1980), it would appear there is a sizable minority in Canada for whom psychiatric and mental health services are not easily accessible in their present form. Not only does hearing impairment significantly affect language, communication and social skills acquisition, it also separates persons so affected from services that other Canadians take for granted.
