Read about us in The Telegraph

The Telegraph Hearing

“After 15 years of struggling with his hearing, Keith Davis reached the point of no return. A meeting he chaired eight years ago, as chief executive of a local authority, had taken four times as long as it should as people painstakingly repeated themselves again and again for his benefit.”

The Telegraph discusses how Keith Davis solved his hearing problems, and our clinical director Paul Checkley is mentioned in the article as follows:

Clinical director Paul Checkley at Harley Street Hearing says he is not surprised it takes on average 15 years for people to seek professional help for hearing loss. “Unfortunately there is a stigma around hearing aids as people perceive it as an outward sign you are getting older. Glasses have now become trendy but the stigma remains for hearing aids.”

CROS hearing aid brings Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star to tears.

Kathryn Edwards“I had no idea I was missing so much.”

Read Kathryn Edwards story – although completely deaf in one ear for the past 18 years now she has the CROS hearing aid which picks up sounds from deaf side and sends them to her hearing ear. No longer is she in the dark when someone is talking to her sitting next on her deaf side.

Kathryn stars on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  See her story here:-

“First and foremost, my ear doctor’s appointment for my hearing aid. I want to clarify with everyone who might have questions about this device…I am still completely deaf in my right ear. The device is called The Phonak CROS. It picks up sound on my deaf side and transmits the sound to the ear I can hear with. So now, when someone sits on the right side (my deaf ear) and talks, I can hear them.
Also, it magnifies the sound of everything, making it as close to what a person with normal hearing would hear.
As you saw in the episode, it brought me to tears. I had no idea I was missing so much. I have been deaf in one ear for 18 years now, and I have missed a lot of conversations because I simply couldn’t hear. I was so surprised by all the little things I was missing.
I had no idea that I was talking loudly. Losing the sound in one ear is a monumental change…so many things adjust when getting used to being deaf and adjusting the volume of my voice was a change I couldn’t gage until I got the Phonak.
By no means does this mimic what it’s like to hear in stereo, with two ears, but it is still a game changer for me. I feel so blessed that this was an option and I was able to get the Phonak aid.
My biggest hurdle now is remembering to wear it every day. There are days that I want to hear without assistance on my good ear, so I choose not to wear it, but I think I will change that habit, because I want to get used to them completely.
I am so happy to share this with everyone, so hopefully this can help someone else.”

Hearing Loss Awareness on-line course

This short course is aimed at anyone who interacts with those with a hearing loss or are deaf, who wishes to have a deeper understanding of the issues they face and Deaf culture.

Participants of the short course will enable organisations to be better equipped to meet the needs of deaf people and people with a hearing loss.

It will also help you understand what access support this group of people may need.

The course will look at how deafness affects people in different ways by exploring real life examples, giving you an insight into Deaf culture, identity and sign language.

It uses videos to let you see people communicating, which will help you understand the different methods of communication in practice.

You’ll also learn about causes of deafness and assistive technologies that can help to provide equal access.
Launched by DCAL (Deafness, Cognition and Language) Research Centre, UCL (University College London) the course is entirely self-directed and online, so you can study at your own pace.  For full details on the course and how to sign up please click here
