Here are the Editor's Picks articles for the Deafness Site! These are the top ten articles that your Deafness Editor feels are most important for you to read. Enjoy!
1. Famous Deaf People
Deafness is not reserved for the poor or the unknown and there are many famous people, past and present who are also Deaf or hearing impaired.
2. Can a deaf person drive?
Ever been asked if youíre allowed to drive? Itís not a question most people even think about. But it is one deaf people get asked regularly. Research shows deaf drivers are no better nor worse than hearing drivers.
3. Noises we hate to hear
Being deaf doesn't necessarily mean we hear nothing and getting hearing back again doesn't always mean we like every sound we hear. I asked a few people what sounds they don't like!
4. Hearing Aid Glasses
Hearing aid glasses are glasses which have the hearing aid built into one (or both) of the arms of the glasses.
5. Pregnancy and Hearing loss
Many women report a change in their hearing during pregnancy. Is there a link between pregnancy and hearing loss?
6. Issues faced by Deaf children
As late as the mid-20th century children with a hearing loss were often misdiagnosed and parents were told they had a mental deficiency. Research has found that children must receive stimulation to the auditory nerves during the early formative years.
7. Benefits of Cochlear Implants in children
Do deaf children benefit from having a Cochlear implant and if so how? Does it give them a better future, improved opportunity for education and are there social benefits?
8. Can the deaf drive?
When the issue of deaf people driving is discussed I donít think it is about discrimination but about safety. Is a deaf driver as safe a driver as a hearing driver? Does the lack of hearing impact on safety?
9. Finding Lip Reading Classes
Is there really a class for lip reading? Yes in fact there are many and teachers can be trained so they can help you learn better.
10. Deaf at night
Even if you have hearing aids or implantable hearing solutions, we are still often deaf at night because we can't keep them on while we sleep.
