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.

Hearing loss support groups
Mixing with people who understand what itís like to lose hearing provides a social atmosphere where embarrassment is removed. These people are more sympathetic and will take the time to listen and help. You are not alone.

Hearing my own voice
Deafness doesnít just affect our hearing, it, among other things, also affects our speech. Many deaf people have never heard their own voice and those of us who went deaf later in life have forgotten what our voice sounds like.

Hearing on special occasions
If you can't hear on special occasions you miss just so much. This is the story of my recent trip to Hawaii for my daughter's wedding.

Hearing on Tours
Taking tours is a challenge if you can't hear and while my cochlear implants give me back near normal hearing, there are times when it just isn't enough.

Hearing Things
Not all sounds are pleasant and Iíve spent a good part of the past two weeks in hospitals.

Hearing through a Hearing Loop
Using a tswitch and a hearing loop means hard of hearing person can get clearer sound than they would if they just used their hearing aid or processor and listened to the sound sent through a loud speaker system.

Hearing vs Listening
Hearing is listening isnít it? Well not exactly. We can hear and listen at the same time but it is possible to hear and not listen.

Hearing, understanding and listening
There are three aspects to hearing but only two for effective communication. Interestingly while the hearing process can help understanding it doesnít necessarily mean you listen effectively.

Helen Keller - Deaf and Blind
I had the privilege of visiting Helen Kellerís childhood home while I was in Alabama in 2013. Her story is one of courage Ė both from her point of view but also that of her Teacher and family.
