How to make the most out of your audiology appointments & your audiologist?
As someone who has had countless audiology appointments for decades, it hasn't always been a smooth process. It's easier to blame the audiologist and the audiology department. But we as patients can also do our bit to make the experience a smooth one.
How audiologists can improve their relationships with deaf/hard of hearing patients?
It is easy to assume that deaf and hard of hearing patients have smooth experiences with their audiologists. But that is not always the case, as *some* audiologists are ironically not as deaf-aware as we wish.
Why we should stop saying "hearing impaired" / "hearing impairment"?
Even though there are various ways describing someone who have some kind of deafness, a common choice of phrasings is "hearing impaired/impairment". It's time we stop using those words, particularly as we tend to frown upon those phrases and there are better choices of words to choose from.

An absolute must of a listen
I’ve had the privilege of working with Hear Me Out for one of his episodes. Since then, I’ve been listening to all of his episodes (while I’m travelling) and even as a deaf person, it’s been an education set through informative and personal discussions with his guests, about deafness and all aspects of life.
What’s more, I do feel like I’m sat round a table with them, drinking a cup of coffee, listening to the discussion at hand.
Well worth a listen!
Fab range of topics, loads of info and Ahmed is great. As someone who experienced sudden hearing loss it’s a great way to immerse myself in the issues. Keep up the good work!
Well done for Ahmed for putting together this awesome podcast. A lot of people are going to find this very helpful.
