1. Understanding Hyperacusis
Little is known about Hyperacusis even within the medical profession. People who suffer it are often accused of being malingerers, making it up or have a psychological disorder. Linda is a sufferer and she tells us about it.
2. Stages of Loss and Grief
To lose one's hearing is to lose a part of one's self. There is a grieving process and often a loss of identity.
3. 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.
4. 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.
Most of us have heard of tinnitus...but do you know what Hyperacusis is? Often these two things are suffered together and those with Cochlear Implants often report Hyperacusis
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. 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.
8. Learning language
Languages are complex and I think it is amazing we learn it with such apparent ease as children. It is so much harder for a deaf child.
9. Are Cochlear Implants for Adults
Cochlear implants have proven to work well in adults. If you are struggling with a hearing aid, then it may be time to look into getting better sound.
10. Managing your hearing loss - stages
