Feb 2013: from Bethany's blog "A New World of Sound"
Felix was born completely deaf. This was picked up by the newborn SWISH screening program when he was one day old.
Waterproof wonder makes Felix's summer added to Felix's page.
My life is now more normal. I am able to join in family conversation, drive again, work safely with my woodworking machinery and have meaningful and pleasant conversations with my wife.
Breaking the Sound Barrier added to Ken's page.
In January 2011 I suffered a sudden and complete hearing loss in my left ear. I already had a partial hearing loss in my right ear (due to an acoustic neuroma) so in the space of a few minutes I went from being able to cope, to total confusion with both my hearing and balance. Hearing-wise I was totally at sea.
Hello my name is Jacqueline. I went completely deaf in a matter of six weeks from January 2010. The hardest thing was not being able to have a conversation with my husband and two teenage daughters. I became so isolated and very, very sad.

Independent of ACOA, Richard Pearce has created two surveys to explore deaf and hard of hearing people's feelings about accessible movies. One focuses on what people prefer and asks for opinions of captioning methods. The other asks for direct feedback on a movie they have seen. Note: These surveys will finish on the 30th April 2013
Do deaf people have access to cochlear implantation if they need it?updated 24/3/13
Cochlear Implants International (Journal of the British Cochlear Implant Group), SPECIAL ISSUE: Supplement 1, March 2013, entitled "Access to Cochlear Implantation", is available open access to download.
Organised by the American Cochlear Implant Alliance, the supplement brings together the experiences and perspectives of cochlear implant clinicians, educators and advocates from Belgium, China, Japan, the UK, and the US. The papers explore why so many children and adults who could benefit from cochlear implants are not receiving the intervention in their country.
