(1894) The range of hearing at various ages. Zeitschrift. , 7, 10-28. 2 THE HISTORICAL SETTING Denzil Brooks In Chapter 1 the proposition was advanced that the most appropriate help for the hearing impaired at the present time is amplification, carefully tailored to individual need and supported with adequate counselling.

The need perceived by the individual with hearing loss may be very different from the need perceived by the family, who find it stressful talking to that person; or by the neighbours who are inconvenienced by over-loud television and radio; or by the family doctor who possibly sees hearing loss as merely a slight inconvenience that is inevitable, an irremediable accompaniment to old age; or by the professional audiologist who sees it as a potential cause of isolation and loss of enjoyment in life.

In the USA, medical clearance is required, but this can be waived if the hearing-aid candidate so desires. Assuming medical advice is sought, will that advice be correct, helpful and based on current knowledge? Regrettably, the evidence in the UK is that advice from doctors and even ear specialists is often both inaccurate and unhelpful. A number of studies (Harris, 1962; Brooks, 1979; Humphrey, GilhomeHerbst and Faruqi, 1981) show that of those hearing-impaired persons seeking for assistance from their family doctor, less than two-fifths are referred on for practical help with a hearing aid.
