1. Interesting things about deafness
Interesting things about deafness - statistics, awards, apps
2. Features of Modern Hearing Aids
When I wore hearing aids all they did for me was make the sound louder. This helped a little in some circumstances. These days with better technologies the outcomes of wearing a hearing aid are much better.
3. Hearing assistance
There are many places you can go for assistance and many things you can do to help you hear better. These will let you know you are not alone and help you enjoy life more.
4. Why our ears are so important
Most people take their ears for granted. After all you were born with them and just like our eyes or mouth your hearing ability developed without you even thinking about it. Most of us never stop to consider what it would be like if our hearing stopped working.
5. Questions about a Cochlear Implant?
I frequently get asked questions about Cochlear Implants. I am only a Cochlear Implantee and do not have access clinical statistics but I do hear/read a lot of anecdotal stories and it is these experiences I share here. The most common comment I read is “I wish I’d done it sooner.”
6. Pregnancy and Hearing loss
Many women report a change in their hearing during pregnancy. Is there a link between pregnancy and hearing loss?
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. Natural Hearing
One day medical science will be able to rejuvenate our hearing using our own genes. I hope I’m around long enough to enjoy it!
10. How does deafness changes your life
Deafness changes our lives, forces us into new directions and often creates in us innovative solutions just to get through the day.
