1. Hearing in background noise
Background noise is a problem for everyone, even those with full hearing. But for those of us who have hearing aids or Cochlear Implants it presents an even greater problem.
2. What we say about our hearing loss
Recently Communication (Australia) conducted a study among people who have some kind of hearing loss to find out the things we need, how we communicate and what barriers we find because of our hearing loss.
3. 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.
4. Tips for music with a Cochlear Implant
Cochlear implants provide excellent speech recognition for the majority of implantees. The next thing we all want is to enjoy listening to music and hear it the way we once did. Here's some tips about who to get the best sound for music with your Cochlear Implant.
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. Recognising noise in our environment
Hearing is far more than just hearing a sound. It is the combination of the actual physical hearing, recognising what the sound is, judging the distance, location and direction, deciding whether there is a threat and knowing whether we need to take action or can ignore it.
7. Assistive Listening Devices
Finding the right Assistive Listening Device can be a minefield. It is regularly seen as ‘too hard’. As a result so many people don’t even ask for help. Sometimes just knowing there are devices which can help is a giant leap in finding solutions for you.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. 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.
