Synopsis

Many of us take for granted the gift of hearing but once we lose it, we start to realise how important it is to our lives. Although medical advances are able to address much of the resulting difficulties, many problems arising from ignorance of the people around the hearing-impaired remains unsolved. For the benefit of the hearing-impaired, there is a need to provide "Reverse Education Therapy" (RET) for these people, especially their caregivers and school teachers.

This book provides an insight into the role of modern technology in helping a hearing-impaired person. More importantly, it provides useful tips that can help people relate better to the hearing-impaired individual. It includes environmental modification strategies at home, classroom management strategies in school and communication strategies around the outside world. Although it covers issues faced by hearing-impaired people of all ages, the focus is on the most vulnerable groups, namely children and the elderly.

Read about the trials and tribulations of the hearing-impaired as they try to fit into the world of the hearing. Share the joys and heartaches of their caregivers, loved ones and supportive school teachers as they explore various strategies to help them.
