The Warning Signs of Deafness
Hearing loss often is silent. Rarely is it sudden (although that does happen). More often it is a slow and gradual loss and this can be difficult to recognise.
Things you should know about hearing loss
Hearing loss is becoming more prevalent as we invent more and more ways to ‘abuse’ our hearing in this noisy world. So there are some things you should know about a hearing loss.
Things you should never say to a deaf person
Tinnitus - an expert view
At Better Hearing Australia Adelaide Inc 's last Coffee Morning Dr Judith Boswell from Tinnitus SA was the speaker. Shona Fennell reports.
Tinnitus is phantom sound made up by the brain in the absence of external stimulation and is usually experienced by deaf people. These other worldly sounds disrupt and interfere with our lives, particularly when we first experience it.
To hearing aid or not?
Being fitted for a hearing aid is confusing. How can you avoid some of it?
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!
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 can pose special challenges for a deaf or hard of hearing person, but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go.
