Public speaking and the hearing impaired
Some people say that they are more afraid of speaking in public than death. Yet public speaking can also help people (including hearing-impaired people) communicate better with others.
Hearing loss and communication
Why do deaf people shout? Why do people shout at deaf people? Why does speech deteriorate along with hearing loss? Of course the obvious answer is that we no longer hear own voice. But there is more to it than that.
Hearing aid moulds
Many hearing aids, and in some cases people with a Cochlear Implant, will require that you have a hearing mould.

Can't hear - What's missing?

To hearing aid or not?
Being fitted for a hearing aid is confusing. How can you avoid some of it?
Difficulties of Lip reading
Even fully hearing people do not hear everything. What we donít hear is filled in giving the impression we have heard everything. For the deaf the gaps are bigger and our brains have to fill in a lot more .
