Garstecki, Dean C.; Erler, Susan F.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v41 n3 p527-37 Jun 1998
Older adults (N=131) with hearing loss completed measures of hearing, hearing handicap, psychological control, depression, and ego strength. Older adults who accepted advice from hearing professionals to acquire and use hearing aids differed from those not accepting such advice on measures of hearing sensitivity, psychological control, and demographic factors. Gender differences were also found. (DB)
