Things you should know about hearing loss
Hearing loss is becoming more prevalent as we invent more and more ways to ‘abuse’ our hearing in this noisy world. So there are some things you should know about a hearing loss.

Boomers and Hearing loss
I find it sad that so many people will suffer because of hearing loss as they age. At a time when they are likely to become isolated from their communities and families due to a loss of mobility, at the same time they are becoming isolated because to their hearing loss.

Do we need support?
When a child is born hearing he usually doesn’t need any support or extra help to learn how to talk. However, when a child is born deaf he needs intensive support usually for speech and language therapy. What about Cochlear implantees?

Feeling inadequate
I have so many skills and accomplishments, so why does deafness make me feel inadequate?

Changing Culture
All cultures encourage change – but at the same time they resist it. Change can be uncomfortable. So has a Cochlear implant entered our cultures/

Linguistic Minority
There are many languages which have died out or have very few speakers. But a number of governments, educationalists and other bodies are doing their utmost to keep these languages alive.

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.

Understanding hearing
If someone who is born deaf and is illiterate has a Cochlear Implant will they understand?

How sudden deafness feels
Imagine waking up one morning and being deaf. Or perhaps having an accident and suddenly you can’t hear. Going deaf suddenly is a life changing experience.

Maintenance and care of hearing aids
Hearing aids are expensive. To make sure you get the best out of them and have them last as long as possible Shona Fennell shares her tips
