Personal Quote:

The handicap of deafness is not in the ear; it is in the mind. See more »

Trivia:

Initially, she believed that she was rendered deaf in infancy by a bout of roseola infantum but later found out that roseola doesn't cause deafness. In the 1990s, a doctor told her mother that he believed that Matlin had a genetically malformed cochlea, which meant that she could likely hear when she was born but that her hearing receded over the first couple of years of her life.
