  • Baby's Hearing
    at age three years 6 months I was told that the public health department was thinking about running a hearing screening at 18 months So what are they dong with the money for newborn hearing testing My grandchild has already had a hearing test because I have a child who has little hearing and I know the hell his life has been locally I would take the grandchild to the US if that was necesssary to get a hearing test done I think the healthy babies program needs more professional support and consultation from younger and passionate professionals It is clear to me that the implementation of this program is being blocked by a tradition myth that newborns cannot hear see or feel I have read philosophy and understand that the concept is very ingrained and very wrong My grandchild and every other newborn baby in the province has the right to hearing either using ears which we know work or using hearing aids The only way this can happen is if the hearing testing happens to every child born as soon as possible The newborn hearing test must be administered by an audiologist not a nurse I would suggest you consult with an audiologist The Ontario Minister of Health never answered my letter so I sent an email to the Premier complaining about the local hearing screening continuing to be set at 3 years 6 months through the Healthy Babies Healthy Children program This is the Premier s response Ontario Healthy babies Healthy children program The Ontario Healthy babies Healthy children program offers a hearing test at age three years six months and they are proud of it Of course if you wait until a kid is three and a half to test the hearing and make the child wait for speech therapy after diagnosis it is not necessary to provide speech therapy to any preschoolers My son never made it through the waiting lists for speech therapy when he was a child At that time the lack of speech pathologists was blamed on the scarcity Why the public health unit had an ad in an English newspaper offering 14 000 for a speech pathologist to come to a remote village in Canada When parents pushed for a speech pathologist they were told We are advertising the position and cannot fill it There is a new spirit in speech therapy which includes the first 6 months of life This is a very good thing and helps to push diagnosis of speech problems and hearing problems back to an earlier age You can help Please get your baby s hearing tested It might be your child or a grandchild or a neighbour a little nag a little suggestion helps If you do not having testing facilities locally which is often the case figure out which hospital has the critical care unit for newborns and phone to make an appointment with the audiologist You do not need a referral PAM Candlish

    the Deaf culture went to a school for members of the Deaf culture The deaf child went to the school for the Deaf means a child who cannot hear went to a school for members of the Deaf culture The deaf child went to a school for the deaf means a child who cannot hear went to a school for children who cannot hear Hearing impaired uses a hyphen My son is hearing impaired covers all the bases I know people who think this is a nice way to say deaf and talks or not absolutely deaf Personally I hate the word impaired and never use this expression However it has no limitations in function and can be used for any level from mild hearing loss to deaf Hearing impaired is not used for Deaf people Hard of hearing is not hyphenated when used as an noun and is hyphenated when used as an adjective Not Deaf Enough raising a child who is hard of hearing has no hyphen The hard of hearing child was mainstreamed and called Stonehead by his friends I am not sure whether it should be Stonehead Stone Head or Stone Head My son is Deaf and Hard of Hearing He refers to himself as hard of hearing because he is in school and that is what he hears from the teachers The peer group does not get around to all those words Other people use hard of hearing as their euphemism for deaf Great importance was attached to the labeling by degree of hearing loss from mild through moderate through severe through profound This caused additional divisions in a group which should be unified by the challenge of deafness An elitism was built into how deaf the child is To think about the ramifications of teaching spoken language to deaf children it is understandable that the challenges were perceived as greater with each step up the deafness ladder In 1986 the hearing aids were not as effective as they are today And nobody understood the implications of earshot for the child at home My son s first BTE for his deafer ear quacked for three years I kept taking the aid in for repairs because I could not understand how a child could learn English from hearing quack quack quack Functionally to reach the level of deafness in his deafer ear the hearing aid must produce a lot of sound The bureaucrats assessed the statistics of deafness and set levels of intensive support only under profoundly deaf children A line was drawn on an audiogram at 70 dB A child with a threshold over 70 dB was called deaf and a child with a threshold under 70 dB was called hard of hearing The deaf children roughly 1 in 1200 were provided with support and special schools At the bottom of the group are the largest group the children with mild hearing losses Many of these children have conductive losses which are considered curable by
