Better Speech and Hearing month 2013
May is Better Speech and Hearing month.

Bi-lateral Cochlear Implantation
Having a Cochlear implant is a difficult decision for many people. This article looks at the key issues in the decision process and then compares that with the decision to have a bi-lateral implant.

Bigotry and deafness
Bigotry is caused by misunderstanding and a failure to tolerate another personís point of view. Some people seem to think that the way they think is right and everyone else isnít entitled to be different.

Boomers and Hearing loss
I find it sad that so many people will suffer because of hearing loss as they age. At a time when they are likely to become isolated from their communities and families due to a loss of mobility, at the same time they are becoming isolated because to their hearing loss.

Born Deaf
Cecile, a beautiful young french woman, was born deaf into a hearing family. She describes what it felt like to be different to everyone around - her struggles to just do normal things and to get an education.

Born deaf now hearing
Cecile says - I was born deaf and had struggled through mainstream education all my life. I had heard a friend of mine Ė who was actually deafer than me Ė had had a successful cochlear implantation. I wanted to improve my life and decided to have the implant.

Break the social bluffing habit
Social bluffing, especially in children, is not good because it can lull people (parents) into thinking you are understanding far more than you are. You miss vital information and miss out on wonderful conversation. It is in your best interests to break the social bluffing habit.

Breakdown in Conversation
Summarised from a presentation by Dr. Christopher Lind, Senior Lecturer in Audiology, Speech Pathology and Audiology Flinders University to BHA Adelaide Inc. members during Hearing Awareness Week 2012. Topic: "I'm sorry, would you repeat that?" - Observing how hearing loss affects every day talk.

Build self esteem
Hearing loss is often synonymous with loss of self-esteem because we lose our place in the world. We are already suffering from our hearing loss making our lives hard so it is important to manage our self-esteem to ensure we donít slip into depression.

Can a deaf person drive?
Ever been asked if youíre allowed to drive? Itís not a question most people even think about. But it is one deaf people get asked regularly. Research shows deaf drivers are no better nor worse than hearing drivers.
