"The wearing of a lap pin to identify the with hearing loss is an excellent idea.  It will inform others that it will be helpful to speak clearly, to speak face-to-face, but with no need to raise their voices.  These are innovative ideas, and I compliment you on recognizing these needs. T. J. this is an excellent idea.  Once it catches on it will help a lot of people

"I endorse the hearing challenge pin, as a tool that will assist communication between the hearing challenged and the hearing community.  

I recognize the importance of having a national  Recognized Symbol for the Hearing Impaired - for safety, understanding and better communication. 

As part of the isolation that occurs with the hearing challenged, is their invisibility, this will enhance that visibility as well as make a general awareness to the public to assist communication."
