What is a "Yahoo Group"?
A Yahoo Group is basically a collection of people with similar interests. Within this group you can share pictures, e-mails, chat on-line etc. etc. If you send an e-mail to the group, everyone who is a member gets a copy. Any member can choose to respond to the message, with a question, an answer or a comment. This results in a running dialogue. Members use this list as both a source of information and support.

This group is not designed for hearing loss in general, but deals specifically with issues related to Atresia and Microtia.
We are merely hosts for our group, although we do monitor it to be sure the discussion stays on topic, and that mutual respect is maintained. There is no one "expert" running our group but rather a group of equal participants. As a result this list should not be considered as professional advice, but as a forum to share personal stories and experiences. Everyone's situation is different.
If you are interested in joining our Group, just visithttp://groups.yahoo.com/group/AtresiaMicrotia. If you have any problems, or you have any questions, e-mail me. Hope to see you there!
