10 misconceptions on hearing loss in students

NOTE: THESE ARE MISCONCEPTIONS so they are wrong assumptions yet people assume so.

  1. A child who responds to sound does not have a hearing loss.
  2. Having a late-diagnosed hearing loss is the same as being born with a hearing loss.
  3. Hearing aids and cochlear implants restore hearing to normal.
  4. With hearing aids or Cochlear Implants, children can usually hear everything that is said in class, and if they can’t hear something they will advise the teacher.
  5. Increasing the sound volume will enable a child with hearing loss to understand what is said.
  6. Children who wear hearing aids or a CI do not need an FM unit as well.
  7. A child who can understand what’s said in small group settings won’t have a problem watching a movie or video without captions.
  8. People with hearing loss are dumb, stupid, mute, have intellectual limitations, and are bound to be unsuccessful.
  9. Children with a hearing loss use American Sign Language (ASL).
  10. People with hearing loss cannot learn other languages.

Say what?…..Audiology

“What? I can’t hear you? Talk slower, so I can read your lips.”  “A-U-D-I-O-L-O-G-I-S-T” When it comes time to learn sign language, it is time to see an Audiologist. M…

An Ear Nose and Throat surgeon with fascination with music studies how the brain works and responds to jazz. Our brain is poorly understood. How does the brain work when it hears sound? He used functional MRI using Blood Imaging.

It takes only a few seconds to notice that Charles Limb is not your ordinary physician. After all, not all doctors have a small recording booth set up near their office or the latest issues of Bass Player, Downbeat, and Electronic Musician on their desk.

A talented saxophonist who directed a jazz band at Harvard University during college and played at New Haven restaurants during medical school at Yale, Limb is also a composer, studio engineer, and music historian (see p.21). He has extensively examined the creativity of composers such as Beethoven and Smetana, both of whom lost their hearing as adults, and he’s written about Thomas Edison’s invention of the phonograph despite being deaf ( a little-known fact).

And while he does keep some musical things to himself—he’s amassed a personal collection of instruments that includes a Rhodes piano, Hohner clarinet, and the obscure Chapman Stick—Limb has never hesitated to share this passion. In addition to writing numerous magazine articles and making frequent symposia appearances, he holds a joint faculty appointment at Hopkins’ Peabody Institute, where he lectures on using computers to study music.

“Basically, I’m a music addict,” he admits. “And I consider myself extremely fortunate to have found a career that enables me to feed my addiction.”

Limb was a recently minted resident and surgical fellow at Johns Hopkins in 2003, when he began a research fellowship with Braun at the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD). Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was coming into vogue, and Braun’s lab was using such imaging to track how the brain processes language and how disorders like stroke disrupt speech. “That led me to think that we could use this same approach to study people while they were doing musical things,” Limb says.

You can also listen to him talking about studying creativity scientifically. Check out his TED Talk –
