Feeling inadequate
I have so many skills and accomplishments, so why does deafness make me feel inadequate?

Finding Hearing Loss Support
Most adults who go deaf feel incredibly alone They have no idea there is even a deaf community, or that there are hearing loss support groups and organisations. In fact, I would venture to say that most people don’t even know to ask the question…where do I get help and support?

Finding Lip Reading Classes
Is there really a class for lip reading? Yes in fact there are many and teachers can be trained so they can help you learn better.

Focus on what you can do
When you have lost your hearing focussing on what you can do and not what you can't may be the answer to accepting the limitations with technology.

Forming the Deaf Culture
When ideas and theories are challenged a community breaks away from the mainstream culture and, as is the case with the Deaf, a new sub-culture is formed. A culture is a “System of symbols, including language and values and the patterned way of doing things shared by a given human group.”

Frustrations of deafness
We look the same as everyone else. Mostly we act the same as everyone else and because our ‘disability’ is hidden people expect us to react just the same as they do.

Frustrations of hearing loss solutions
I am amazed I can hear, will never stop listening and will never give my processors back, and I always choose to wear them, there are some frustrations at the solutions they provide. Sometimes this is a small price to pay for normal hearing but other times it seems too high a price.

Funding options for hearing devices
A question which arises frequently about any kind of hearing device (hearing aid, cochlear implant, baha) is how much does it cost and how will I pay for it? How you will do this depends very much on where you live in the world.

Going deaf - what do you do?
When you first suspect your hearing is deteriorating most people deny it. But you’ve come to the point where you’ve realised you can no longer deny it – what do you do?

Going deaf - where to start?
Preparing for a deaf future is confronting. So often we focus on what we have lost. By understanding the new challenges we face and how we can get around some of them makes it easier to cope.
