Deaf humour
Like any culture (or sub-culture) there are ‘in jokes’ and there is plenty of deaf humour around which play on the differences between hearing and deafness. Through humour we can laugh at ourselves and be laughed at without being ridiculed.

Deaf or Blind
I meet many people and they often say to me I am ‘lucky’ because I lost my hearing and not my vision. They tell me it would be far easier to live with deafness than blindness. I’ve often wondered why they should think this when the issues of being deaf are complex.

Deaf or Hearing?
Being deaf and being Deaf are two different things in our society. When a person goes deaf in later life - where do they fit? If they have their hearing restored through technology are they deaf or hearing?

Deaf Pedestrian Safety
In a health conscious environment many people walk for exercise. There are things which seem obvious which can make it safer for you to walk. Being alert to your surroundings is extra important.

Deaf people become Hidden in full View
There are not only no visible signs of deafness, but because deaf people cannot easily participate they often become hidden and this leads to social isolation.

Deaf Sports
I can understand why there might be Disabled or Blind Sports but why are there Deaf Sports?

Deaflympics
The focus of the world has been on Beijing during August 2008 with the Olympic games showcasing the fastest athletes, the strongest swimmers, the smoothest divers and the best and greatest in any of the sports competing for glory. But not all people can compete in the Olympics.

Deafness - a foreign country
Deafness brings mis-understanding, alienation and language barriers. It's a lot like moving to a foreign country.

Deafness and a cold
From time to time we are all troubled with minor illness like a cold. So how does a cold affect our hearing?

Deafness and a hearing spouse
Deafness doesn’t just affect the person who is deaf. It has a profound effect upon all those people we love. Spouses particularly have to develop a level of understanding.
