1. Deaf Blindness - Usher Syndrome
I canít think of anything worse than to be cut off from the world by being both deaf and blind. Recently I have come across a number of people on our Cochlear Implant Experiences Facebook group who suffer from this. How hard their lives must be and I wondered what caused it.
2. Deafness through trauma
Being hearing in a hearing world is what most of us experience. Itís part of our life and something we mostly take for granted. So what does someone do who loses their hearing when they experience a trauma?
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. Pregnancy and Hearing loss
Many women report a change in their hearing during pregnancy. Is there a link between pregnancy and hearing loss?
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. Managing your hearing loss - stages
Managing your hearing loss Ė what stage are you in? Determining what stage of hearing loss you have reached helps you manage it.
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. 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.
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
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.
