Hearing aids on the increase
More and more people are requiring and have access to hearing aids. What are the reasons behind this increase?
Hearing allows a better education
In an earlier article I looked at how going deaf impacted on our education? The main reason is because language is incredibly difficult to acquire if you canít hear and without language itís especially hard to participate in school or university. So does having a cochlear implant help?
Hearing and balance
Our ears not only channel sound into our cochlea and then to the brain so we can understand noise, they also play an important role in allowing us to stand upright Ė to keep our balance.
Hearing and health
Does our general health affect our hearing? It has long been recognised that hearing loss can have an effect on our mental health causing anxiety, loss of self esteem and depression. Are things which are going on in other parts of our body affecting our hearing?
Hearing and Weather
In South Australia we have endured a heat wave and Adelaide, our capital city, earned the title (for a day) as the hottest city in the world. I wondered whether this heat can affect our hearing. There are a few things which might affect our hearing.
Hearing Awareness Celebrations
Many countries have a Hearing Awareness Week (or a Deaf Awareness Week)Ė a week in which individuals, organisations and companies seek to raise awareness about hearing health. I wondered what it is for.
Hearing differences in everyday life
Do others notice the difference in us now that we can hear again? Do we find it different? Are there noticeable differences with bi-lateral hearing?
At the Disability Expo in Adelaide Australia, last week a Cochlear Implantee brought along her Hearing Dog. I asked her why, since she can now hear very well, did she need a hearing dog.
Hearing help solutions
If you have a hearing loss there are many kinds of solutions. The best solution for you will depend on how bad and what kind of loss you have. This article looks at hearing aids, implantable solutions and assistive listening devices.
