1. Tips for music with a Cochlear Implant

2. Break the social bluffing habit
Social bluffing, especially in children, is not good because it can lull people (parents) into thinking you are understanding far more than you are. You miss vital information and miss out on wonderful conversation. It is in your best interests to break the social bluffing habit.

7. Music and deafness
There has been a lot of discussion in the media about the risk of deafness caused by listening to music on a personal audio device such as an iPod or MP3 player.
8. Gradual Deafness
Felicity went gradually deaf from around age 25 until she was totally deaf by age 35. She lived the next 2 decades deaf.
9. Hearing loss and music
When someone starts to go deaf, losing music is probably not their first concern. In fact, many will naturally stop listening to music until one day the recognise how much they have missed.
10. How do voices sound with a Cochlear implant?
“Do the voices sound like a robot, or are they just as how people that are not deaf hear them?” That’s a really good question one that I think is asked frequently and the answer is misunderstood so I will try to explain.
