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.

Help hearing people help you
Isolation is not a solution to avoid communication. Ask people (your family) how they would like to communicate with you. Help your family to know how best to attract your attention. It is a learning process for everyone and patience is needed by all of us.

History of Auslan - Australian Sign Language
Deaf Communities were formed as a result of adversity and alienation Ė a necessity for a group of people who were branded with a stigma who were ostracised and isolated from the world into which they were born. It was from this that their rich language was developed.

History of Hearing Aids
We know that there have been deaf people throughout history. In fact, because communication was so difficult these people were denied some of the basic human rights. What kinds of aids were available before technology gave us the aids we know today?

How a cochlear implant works
Recently I was asked how a Cochlear Implant works. First of all if you understand how normal hearing works it might help you to understand how the cochlear implant works. (I'm not a doctor nor an audiologist, simply an implantee! so this is not a medical treatise!)

How Deaf is Deaf?
It is different for everyone and does depend on what the cause of deafness is, but Deaf/deafened can be totally deaf and get no sound at all, or may still get some very loud sound, in just a few frequencies or it could be distorted.
