Deaf Pedestrian Safety
In a health conscious environment many people walk for exercise. There are things which seem obvious which can make it safer for you to walk. Being alert to your surroundings is extra important.

How deaf people cope with an emergency
Emergencies have a nasty habit of occurring in the middle of the night. Most deaf or hearing impaired people donít wear their hearing aids to bed so how do they know if there is an emergency? This is very difficult for those who cannot hear.

Baha to combat deafness - What is it?
Some people do not have an ear or ear canal and certain kinds of tumours, or the operation to remove them, can cause loss of the middle ear. Sound cannot penetrate the damaged portion but a bone conduction hearing aid could be an option.

Losing hearing aids
What do you do if you lose your hearing aid? Panic? Well I suppose that is the first response of many people. Hearing aids, regardless of type often get lost, misplaced or damaged and since they can be very expensive, losing one is likely to cause plenty of stress.

Captioning/subtitles for the deaf
Closed captions, or subtitles, can enhance the experience whether you are watching television, you are at the movies, at the theatre, in an aircraft or airport, hospital, shopping mall or on the internet. There are even noisy environments where captioning can benefit people with full hearing.

Being deaf isn't all bad
Sometimes it can be good to be deaf. Hereís a few times I was glad to be deaf.

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.

Lipreading - why would you need it?
Lip reading, why do you need it? If you are sometimes having trouble understanding speech, one of the best things you can do for yourself is learn lip reading. Learning lip reading can help you communicate better even if you can't hear everything.

What is a Cochlear Implant
A Cochlear Implant is not an alternative to a hearing aid. It is only an option if a person cannot effectively use hearing aids. It is not a high powered hearing aid and does not amplify sound. It is a serious decision, one which is taken after testing and all other avenues for hearing are explored.
