User: what is the impact of communication with individulas with hearing loss

Weegy: For the person with a hearing loss, this could also involve their relationship with society in general affecting such activities as watching television, listening to the news, going to the theatre or to a concert. [ All of these circumstances are opportunities for communication, the essence of our participation in our society. They all suffer as a consequence of hearing loss.Among the major issues faced by the hard of hearing are grief over the hearing loss, low self-esteem, stress and the resulting fatigue, depression, loss of intimacy, withdrawal, social isolation and possibly chemical dependency. Few hearing people understand that for those of us with loss of hearing it is, more accurately, loss of intelligibility. Words are often missing or distorted…leading us to believe that “everyone is mumbling.” There are several simple and affordable assistive listening devices you can use in your practice to help make your services more accessible. These are helpful for communicating with both hearing aid users and those who have not yet acquired hearing aids or who do not realize how much they are missing due to a hearing loss. Support groups and pre-and post-fitting education, or auditory rehabilitation, play a significant role in consumer satisfaction and adjustment. There are a number of other resources that go into more detail on such subjects as how hearing loss is experienced, its physical, emotional and social impact, problems that lead to communication breakdown, impact on the spouse and family, special problems of older adults, steps toward adjustment, the value of assistive listening devices, how to cope in a medical facility and, most important, implications for helpers and suggestions for how to make your services more attractive and accessible. ]

User: what is the impact of communication with individuals with deafblindness

Weegy: Deafblind people communicate in many different ways determined by the nature of their condition, the age of onset, and what resources are available to them. [ For example, someone who grew up deaf and experienced vision loss later in life is likely to use a sign language (in a visually modified or tactual form). Others who grew up blind and later became deaf are more likely to use a tactile mode of their spoken/written language. Methods of communication include: Use of residual hearing (speaking clearly, hearing aids) or sight (signing within a restricted visual field, writing with large print). Tactile signing, sign language, or a manual alphabet such as the American Manual Alphabet or Deafblind Alphabet (also known as "two-hand manual") with tactile or visual modifications. Interpreting services (such as sign language interpreters or communication aides). Communication devices such as Tellatouch or its computerized versions known as the TeleBraille and Screen Braille Communicator. ]
