Grades of Hearing Impairment
American Speech-Language-Hearing Association
Slight Hearing Loss 16 - 25 (dB) decibels
"People with slight hearing loss may have trouble hearing faint (quiet) speech. They may also have to listen carefully in important or difficult situations." Indiana State Department of Health
Mild Hearing Loss 26 - 40 (dB) decibels
"For people with mild hearing loss, understanding speech can be difficult. They can usually hear well if they are listening to a single person speak in a quiet situation. However, they have trouble hearing faint or distant speaking. People with mild herring loss usually can benefit from hearing aids." Indiana State Department of Health
Moderate Hearing Loss 41 - 55 (dB) decibels
"Listening is a strain for people with moderate hearing loss. While they can understand what a person says if the person is close, it can be difficult for them to hear someone else in a noisy environment. People with moderate hearing loss may miss 50 - 75% of speech in a conversation and often need to have part of the conversation repeated. People with moderate hearing loss usually can benefit from hearing aids." Indiana State Department of Health
Moderately Severe Hearing Loss 56 - 70 (dB) decibels
"People with moderate - severe hearing loss can miss up to 100% of speech in a conversation and need for a conversation to be very loud. Again, people with moderate - severe hearing loss usually can benefit from hearing aids." Indiana State Department of Health
Severe Hearing Loss 71 - 90 (dB) decibels
"People with severe hearing loss may hear a loud voice, if the person speaking is one foot (12 inches) away from his/her ear. They may be able to identify noises in their environment (for example, a paper rustling or traffic outside), but often appear to be ignoring conversation from the people around them." Indiana State Department of Health
Profound Hearing Loss 91+ dB (decibels)
"People with profound hearing loss are considered to be deaf. They may detect very loud sounds, and ae usually aware of vibrations (movements) around them. People with this degree of hearing loss may rely on vision (sight), rather than hearing, as their main way of communicating with other people. People with profound hearing loss may benefit from treatments or therapies that amplify sound… but may benefit more from a cochlear implant." Indiana State Department of Health

We recommend that even if a person has a hearing aid, an amplified phone is still necessary. Hearing aids are removed at night when going to bed and if an emergency call comes through or an emergency call needs to be made an amplified phone next to the bed is important for anyone with hearing loss when the hearing aids are out.
