Too old for a Cochlear implant?
You’d think that perhaps someone who was (say) over 90 would be too old to have a Cochlear Implant wouldn’t you. Well it seems this is not always the case.

Travel and being Deaf
I’m a 24 year-old French girl, deaf since birth. Travelling as a deaf person is a challenge. But you just have to get rid of the perception that misunderstanding or being misunderstood is shameful, and be ready to go off the beaten path of communication!

Travel plans
In a few days we are heading off around the world for two months. This means we have to plan how to manage our health and hearing needs well in advance.

Travelling deaf
Travelling can pose special challenges for a deaf or hard of hearing person, but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go.

Understanding deafened adults
For those of us who have experienced late on-set deafness our lives have been turned upside down. Everything familiar has become strange because we can no longer interpret the world as we know it and we don’t know where we fit.

Understanding hearing
If someone who is born deaf and is illiterate has a Cochlear Implant will they understand?

Understanding hearing loss
At the 5th Australian National Deafness Summit in Canberra during May 2008 I was astounded to hear some of the statistics on the increase in prevelance of deafness. While the statistics I quote are for the Australian market they apply to all markets.

Understanding the excitement of hearing
When a child hears for the first time, what causes the excitement and joy? Is it the sound of his mother's voice or is it something else. It is exciting and it is wonderful that the child is now hearing but it will take time for them to learn to listen and understand what they are hearing.

Unrealistic Expectations from hearing technologies
A lot of people with a hearing impairment express their frustration with family and friends who think that just because they now have hearing aid or even an implantable hearing solution such as a cochlear implant or baha, they are expected to hear perfectly again.

Using a hearing aid
You just buy a hearing aid and stick it in your ear and you can hear properly again – that’s right isn’t it? Wouldn’t it be great if it was that simple, but it’s not.
