Answering questions about a Cochlear Implant
Recently I was asked a lot of questions about what it’s like to wear a Cochlear Implant. Here’s some of the questions and my answers.
Hearing Loss Statistics UK & USA
Hearing loss is a worldwide issue. In this article I point to some excellent UK hearing loss statistics and summarise some for the USA.
Testing for hearing loss in babies
Without hearing it is more difficult for a child to learn a language and without language we cannot even think. You want the best for your child. Get their hearing checked so if they need it they can get the appropriate treatment.
The focus of the world has been on Beijing during August 2008 with the Olympic games showcasing the fastest athletes, the strongest swimmers, the smoothest divers and the best and greatest in any of the sports competing for glory. But not all people can compete in the Olympics.
Job hunting if you're deaf
Finding a job if you’re deaf can be almost impossible. How do you apply when you need to use a phone and can’t?
The Warning Signs of Deafness
Hearing loss often is silent. Rarely is it sudden (although that does happen). More often it is a slow and gradual loss and this can be difficult to recognise.
Deaf discrimination at work
A discussion on whether discrimination at work exists for the deaf and if so in what forms and how can it be overcome.
The stigma of hearing aids
I have been examining the issue of why there is a stigma attached to wearing hearing aids. If you wear glasses there is no stigma. You put them on and say “Wow now I can see!” but hearing aids can’t be that effective and in many cases you still hear poorly even with the aid.
The Evolution of Auslan

Hearing Loss Statistics
Hearing loss is prevelant. While many of the statistics I quote are Australian, research indicates that these statistics apply to most countries. All you need to do to is multiply the percentage by your country’s population to find the number of people.
