Even 'safe' headphones put your child's hearing at risk

The popularity of headphones and earbuds has soared—and the market is projected to grow 20 percent a year in the next five years. But there’s a problem: Your children, teens or young adults could easily be putting their hearing at risk.
http://ow.ly/zME450FqTbf

Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and hearing loss are the risks of wearing headphones, even those marketed as safe for kids. Here's how to protect them.

In our special edition of CHHA Listen Magazine CHHA National Mentor Gael Hannan shares the impact of being a Mentor in her article "Mentoring: Paying It Forward"

"A person who has hearing loss needs help. It’s almost impossible to accurately self-diagnose hearing loss or self-prescribe effective solutions. A person may choose to wave off the persistent consequences of hearing loss. But if they want to hear better and be healthier, they need to reach out for help.

Working with a hearing professional is an obvious first step. But an important follow-up step is less well-known— learning with other people with hearing loss. There is a profound sense of relief in connecting with someone who understands what you’re going through and who can provide useful strategies outside the mandate of most hearing professionals, such as handling relationships, on the job, and navigating the health system, and how to self-identify and self-advocate," Gael.

Cochlear Implant makes a difference in the lives of children, young people and adults who needs it. It should be one of the products on the WHO's Priority Assistive Product list (https://www.who.int/.../assistive.../global_survey-apl/en/). The recognition of Cochlear as a priority assistive product is the first step of Public Funding and support for people who need Cochlear Implants. WHO's member states' health care and welfare services and programmes should prioritise Cochlear Implants. Sign the petition in different languages to contribute to the positive change in lives of people in need of Cochlear Implants. https://www.change.org/p/world-health-organisation-include-cochlear-implant-on-priority-assistive-product-list
Cochlear Implant Association Hessen-Rhein-Main eV and other Cochlear Implant users are advocating for the inclusion of Cochlear Implants on the World Health Organisation's Priority Assistive Product list.

Speaksee has created AutoCaptions for any virtual meeting on your computer and also multiple remote microphones for in person meetings to send text to your smartphone. Seems to fill several voids in our current systems. Please let me know if you try either option.
When the pandemic hit us last March, an important activity that “shut down” for me was in-person yoga classes. My yoga instructor made the transition to teaching her classes online, which now seems to be the trend in the general fitness community. At first, I was a bit skeptical—do I really want to practice yoga in front of my computer? When I go to the yoga studio, I drop anything that is going on at home and/or work at the door and allow myself to have an hour for myself; I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do this same “drop off” if I was practicing at home (or at work on my lunch break for that matter). So, I gave it a try, and realized doing yoga online was different but there are actually some positive benefits that I wouldn’t get in person. The first benefit is the classes are uploaded online and available anytime, which really works well when you have a child and you need to get that 10:00 p.m. yoga session in after everyone else has gone to bed. The other biggest benefit for me, is that my instructor’s platform (Facebook) recently enabled uploaded videos to have captions! When I go to in-person classes (with a hearing loss), I really rely on visual cues to know which position I am supposed to do next. I keep my eyes opened when we are told to close them for instance. In doing classes online now, it has relieved some of that anxiety, especially now that if I miss something, I can glance at the captions and know what was said. As we move into an online world, I feel that having the option for captions should be the norm and should be advocated for if your online classes (and not just for fitness) do not already have them. If you are interested in trying yoga (with captions!) or are looking for a different instructor, here is the biography and more information for the instructor I practice with, Danielle Champagne. If you love your instructor but wish you had captions, ask for them! Let’s take advantage of the accessibility options online! Danielle has been practicing yoga for 20+ years, and teaching since 2010, when she began sharing her journey through yoga and personal development. Incorporating elements of Yin, Power, Yinyasa, Meditation, Breath, Martial Arts, and so much more, no two classes are ever the same. Inspired by life, in its darkness and light, Danielle encourages focus on realizing our inner and outer strengths, and utilizing the power of the mind and the body to create and sustain a healthy and balanced lifestyle with deep awareness. Awaken to your ideal self, and build the confidence to create your reality, and uncover your soul purpose. Through a variety of practices and inner discipline we all can live to our greatest well-being from inside out. Check out her website at: www.daniellechampagne.com to learn more and get in contact.

Do you want to learn more about Cochlear's Osia System? Learn from the expert, the user - Brooke! Join us tomorrow, October 21st from 7 pm to 8 pm EDT for the Parent & Osia Recipient Cochlear Q&A. Brooke is 17 years old and was diagnosed with a unilateral sensorineural hearing loss at the age of 2. She initially had the BAHA. After 7 years Brooke went through 2 surgeries to remove the old implant and abutment to receive the Osia System. Brooke's mom: "She is truly thrilled with the OSIA and does not have to struggle as hard to hear what others are saying. She says the sound quality is great and is most like any “regular” sound that she has ever heard. She wears it whenever she is out of the house and it is essential for her when she is at work at a pet store. It has given her greater confidence." Register for the live webinar and tune in tomorrow! https://www.cvent.com/d/77q21z

Posted by a fellow cochlear implant user. An interesting read on speech perception with masks, clear masks and face shields.
Are there any (video) gamers in this group? 🎮 For several games, headsets are required in order to hear the game + others AND speak through to communicate with other players. Currently TV streamers from HA/ CI. manufactures don’t accommodate both of these requirements. I’m interested in how hard of hearing gamers who wear hearing aids/ cochlear implants are communicating while connecting successfully while playing? Thanks in advance!
