Hearing Impairment Experiment

Satisfactory Essays
In this analysis I will begin by giving a description of the resource centers that help me prepare for this experimental journey. I will detail my occurrence of having a hearing impairment for approximately six hours; I will entail every activity with its sentiments outlining my drawback having the disability. I will continue by describing a little bit about hearing impairment. I will have various sources throughout the illustrative paper. I will conclude this paper with a reflection of this experience.
When I first learned about this experimentation, I looked into intervention programs for people with hearing disabilities in Montréal. The first one I researched was CHIP [Communicaid for Hearing Impaired Persons]. It is a non-profit organization that has a mission towards helping people with hearing impairment. They promote programs similar to HEAR [Hearing Education for Aural Rehabilitation] to help teach people with hearing disability to be successful within their community and in their daily lives. They also have support groups for the people with the impairments as well as their families. CHIP's Technical Aids and Resource Centre, also offers explanations on assistive listening devices, American Sign Language, guides people with hearing impairments on receiving government services and impairment grants. An additional resource center I discovered was Raymond-Dewar Institute. It’s very similar to CHIP, but leans more towards the French community. Raymond-Dewar Institute helps people who have a hearing impairment and minimum twenty-one years of age. Most of their clients have been diagnosed with an either a lasting conductive hearing loss or sensor-neural. This milieu offers a late-deafened support group, cochlear implant workshops; it also submits a comprehensive range of French programs which include courses such as LSQ, [Quebec sign language]. In essence CHIP, first and foremost serves the Anglophones of Montréal and Raymond-Dewar Institute serves the Francophone of Montréal.
Hearing-impairment later in life may possibly be the consequence of many different reasons; diseases such as Meningitis, Mumps, of even AIDS might cause deafness. There are many ways of categorize hearing loss. One category is conductive hearing loss might be the outcome of when sound waves have difficulty getting transmitted from the air outside the ear to the tiny hair cells in the cochlea, which is the inside of the ear, where the sound waves are transmitted as nerve impulses. This type of hearing loss is frequently found in a swimmer's ear. After the sound waves passes through the ear canal it may cause the eardrum [Tympanic Membrane] to throb.
