Sounds we miss the most
What sounds would you miss the most if you went deaf? Or what sounds do you miss the most now that you are deaf?
Hearing loss in children (UK)
Hearing loss prevelance in the UK is about 390 children per year. This research found that many parents were opting for a cochlear implant.
Deafness in babies
We all want our children to be perfect, to have the best advantages and start in life. If you suspect your child isnít responding to sound the way you expect what should you do? Is my child deaf? Here are some suggestions of what you can do.
Communicating with confidence
One of the first things we lose as we go deaf is confidence. It is fear of rejection, because we might make a fool of ourselves which is the main cause. But there is no need to passively accept it. You can take steps to improve your confidence.
Deafness and a hearing spouse
Deafness doesnít just affect the person who is deaf. It has a profound effect upon all those people we love. Spouses particularly have to develop a level of understanding.
Community and Identity
Recently a member of our Cochlear Implant Forum raised a couple of extremely important points, probably the crux of the issue with cochlear implants for people who identify with the Deaf community. These are a sense of community and a sense of identity.
How a cochlear implant works
Recently I was asked how a Cochlear Implant works. First of all if you understand how normal hearing works it might help you to understand how the cochlear implant works. (I'm not a doctor nor an audiologist, simply an implantee! so this is not a medical treatise!)
Cochlear Implant outcomes
Why is there a variation between the outcomes for some Cochlear Implantess? I'm not a doctor, just a successful implantee and I get asked this question frequently. And what constitutes success?
Cochlear implantation process for children
Navigating the journey of Cochlear implantation in children is new territory for new parents. The Sydney Cochlear Implant Centre held a forum to help parents understand their options if their child is found to have a hearing loss.
Disposable hearing aids
Hearing aids have come a long way from the analogue aids I wore. My aids were relatively bulky and either sat behind my ear or filled my ear canal leaving me with a hot stuffed feeling. But the latest hearing aids are digital and are far more powerful and adaptable than old analogue aids.
