Your child is deaf
“Your child is deaf” – words parents of a newborn or toddler definitely never expect to hear. Their reaction, whether they themselves are Deaf or hearing, is usually one of shock, anger, fear, grief and confusion.
You’re Deaf! Or do you just talk loud?
One extremely conspicuous sign of deafness is when someone’s speech is too loud, way louder than those who are round them or the situation and condition demands. But is this always indicative of deafness?
Workplace strategies for the deaf
Statistics show that people with a hearing loss on average are more likely to be unemployed, under employed or paid less than their hearing counterparts. However with just a little thought and consideration people with a hearing loss are productive employees.
Why our ears are so important
Most people take their ears for granted. After all you were born with them and just like our eyes or mouth your hearing ability developed without you even thinking about it. Most of us never stop to consider what it would be like if our hearing stopped working.
Why isn’t there a universal Sign Language?
Surely when sign language was being developed it would have been sensible to have a universal language? That might seem logical but in reality it isn’t.
Why is Deafness so isolating?
When communication difficulties exist human interaction stops and without human interaction we feel alone.
Why do people become Cochlear Awareness Advocates?
When someone gets hearing aids they don't become a hearing aid advocate and join a group telling people about their experience. Yet Cochlear Implantees often become Advocates. I wondered why?
Why can't I hear RIGHT NOW!
‘I’ve had a cochlea implant. I know what sound is. I know what speech is. So why can’t I hear straight away? And how can I explain this to my family and friends?’ For those of us who’ve gone deaf and had a cochlea implant these are questions we hear all the time.
Why are two ears better than one?
I cannot remember hearing with two ears and now I am considering bi-lateral cochlear implantation. I wanted to know what I could expect by hearing with two ears.
What’s it like to go deaf?
I was born to hear. I learned language at my mother’s knee and attended main stream schools. I had everything going for me and deafness didn't even enter into it. The sense of loss was enormous and I almost lost myself.
