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. 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.
2. How should we listen?
Hearing devices can be tailored to our individual needs but to take advantage of this we must be engaged with how we hear, what we hear and what we need changed or tweaked to allow us to get the most benefit from these.
3. Learning to be hear bilaterally
How do we go about learning to hear with a second implant? How do you proceed to get the best of your hearing?
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. Frustrations of deafness
We look the same as everyone else. Mostly we act the same as everyone else and because our ‘disability’ is hidden people expect us to react just the same as they do.
6. 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.
7. The benefits of music on our hearing
The benefits of music are far greater than the simple enjoyment of a beautiful sound. Music stimulates our brains in many ways – even if we can’t hear it the way we would like.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. 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.
