Deafness and languages
Learning a new language is hard even for most people with excellent hearing. Learning a second language when you are deaf and canít get any feedback about the way the language sounds is doubly difficult.

Deafness and Music
Learning music as a child seems to help them learn speak and lay down strong auditary pathways in the brain. These strong auditary pathways seems to have shown that if someone goes deaf later in life, those who had music training cope better.

Deafness and personal safety at work
It depends on the kind of work you do, but being deaf in the workplace often comes with risks. If you work in an office then this risk may be minimal but if you are in an industrial workplace risks could be considerable.

Deafness and personal safety in the home
We all rely on our senses to alert us to danger. We use our vision to see obstacles and our hearing to listen for alarms, traffic or intruders. When someone is deaf an important early warning system is missing.

Deafness and socialising
Make the most of the Christmas and New Year holiday season and enjoy it.

Deafness and speech - accent
'You don't sound deaf!' A surprised comment from many people I come across. This article looks at what 'sounding deaf' means.

Deafness and speech - mishearing
Mishearing occurs for both deaf and hearing people and often both feel embarassment. But there are so many times this happens for deaf and hard of hearing people that it builds to a feeling of inadequacy.

Deafness and speech - mispronunciation
Everyone mispronounces words occasionally, but those with a hearing loss find many more occasions to mispronounce simply because we may never have heard a word spoken. Not knowing pronunciation makes lip reading harder and is one of many reasons late deafened people withdraw from social contact.

Deafness and sports
Is there any reason why a deaf person canít participate in sports? The answer to this is of course, if they have the inclination and the talent then of course they can participate. But there may be some limitations.

Deafness and the internet
The internet is a great leveller. I am not deaf on the internet and therefore, there are many opportunities for socialising, entertainment and keeping up with news and current affairs which were once denied me.
