1. Insuring hearing devices
Recently, I asked a group of people if they do insure their implant processors and if so how they do it.
2. 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.
Dishwashers, washing machines, tumble dryers, kitchen gadgets of all sorts. Then there are our modern toys. All these things to make our lives easier, to help us communicate, easier, better and give us more free time. But do we really have more?
4. Pregnancy and Hearing loss
Many women report a change in their hearing during pregnancy. Is there a link between pregnancy and hearing loss?
5. Losing our processors or hearing aids
When we rely on some sort of device to hear it can be devastating if we lose or damage one. I asked a group of people had they ever lost one.
6. 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.
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. Hearing Aid Glasses
Hearing aid glasses are glasses which have the hearing aid built into one (or both) of the arms of the glasses.
9. 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?
10. Hearing Loss and Driving Cars
Should hearing impairment stop you from driving? Are there any rules and if so what are they? What does the research show about safe driving for deaf people.
