Cochlear Nucleus 6 Speech Processor
The Nucleus 6 Cochlear Implant processor has just been released. I currently have excellent sound with my Nucleus 5 Cochlear Implant processors, so why am I going to upgrade for the third time? I asked two people who already use the system to give me their comments.
Communicating with confidence
One of the first things we lose as we go deaf is confidence. It is fear of rejection, because we might make a fool of ourselves which is the main cause. But there is no need to passively accept it. You can take steps to improve your confidence.
Communicating with deaf people
Here are some tips about how you can help communication with a deaf or hard of hearing person. Why not print them out and put them in a prominent space at your work, club or home.
Communication creates understanding
We all know that listening is the best way to create understanding. When you are down, if you have a friend you can talk to about your problems this simple act of having someone listen often takes away the stress.
Community and Identity
Recently a member of our Cochlear Implant Forum raised a couple of extremely important points, probably the crux of the issue with cochlear implants for people who identify with the Deaf community. These are a sense of community and a sense of identity.
A conversation is a two way exchange of information, ideas, thoughts and reasoning. It takes two or more people to have a good conversation. (You can talk to yourself if you like, but itís likely to be biased!)
Coping with a phone interview
We have to sell ourselves and being in the best position to do so can be difficult especially these days when first interviews may be conducted by phone. I don't have any answers. Here's my recent experience.
Coping with Deafness at Christmas
The malls are in a frenzy, the department stores crowded and parties galore. Well of course. Itís Christmas! This time of year can mean extra stress for deaf and the hearing imparied. Even if you get good results from your hearing aids or implant processors some coping tricks may still be needed.
Coping with Deafness on Holiday
Getting away for a break can be stressful, but when you are deaf or hearing impaired being in strange places can be even harder. Take time to prepare before you leave to help relieve some of the pressure.
Coping with the phone at work
A new job is always a challenge, for anyone Ė hearing, hard of hearing or deaf. Recently I won another part-time position and as someone with Cochlear implant I always feel that I am on trial in a way I never used to feel when I was fully hearing.
