The Listening Project explores the profound impact that hearing technology has on the lives and identities of young adults with hearing loss as they navigate their way through life. Sometimes humorous and always tender, this 30-minute documentary takes us on a journey beginning in childhood, through the growing pains of adolescence, and eventually into their professional lives.

Together, Dr. Jane Madell, PhD, FAAA, CCC-A/SLP, LSLS Cert AVT, and Oscar-nominated, Emmy and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Irene Taylor Brodsky bring us this touching coming-of-age story. We hear several adults share their experiences navigating life with hearing loss while listening and talking.


The Listening Project shows the joys and challenges of what it’s like to grow up with hearing loss. These young adults are examples of how with perseverance, access to sound, and the right technology, the sky's the limit for today’s little ones growing up deaf or hard of hearing.
