Here are the top ten articles for the Deafness Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. Baha and a Roger Pen
Bob Williams shares his story of single sided deafness, his Baha and how he gets better hearing with a device called a Roger pen.
2. Managing your hearing loss - stages
Managing your hearing loss – what stage are you in? Determining what stage of hearing loss you have reached helps you manage it.
3. Travel plans
In a few days we are heading off around the world for two months. This means we have to plan how to manage our health and hearing needs well in advance.
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. 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.
6. Cochlear Implant recall
On September 11 Cochlear Limited announced a recall of some versions of their N5 implant. This recall sent their shares immediately tumbling by a hefty 20%. why would a company which has experienced phenomenal growth and increases in share prices do something so drastic?
7. Can a deaf person drive?
Ever been asked if you’re allowed to drive? It’s 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. Pregnancy and Hearing loss
Many women report a change in their hearing during pregnancy. Is there a link between pregnancy and hearing loss?
9. Deaf humour
Like any culture (or sub-culture) there are ‘in jokes’ and there is plenty of deaf humour around which play on the differences between hearing and deafness. Through humour we can laugh at ourselves and be laughed at without being ridiculed.
10. Hearing Television
Television is without doubt, one of our primary leisure activities. But to do this it assumes we have access to the audio content and for those of us who are deaf, hard of hearing or need hearing aids or cochlear implants this can sometimes be challenging.
