What’s your favorite sound?

Happy First Sunday of Better Hearing Month! We hope that everyone is able to get out and enjoy the beautiful weekend that we are having.

Since we’re posting once-per-day in May to celebrate Better Hearing Month, we’re able to revisit some of our favorites!

I couldn’t help sharing one of my favorite hearing related campaigns. This one was brought to us by Unitron.

[av_video src=’https://youtu.be/qtuE1VhK1PM’ format=’16-9′ width=’16’ height=’9′]

So we ask you, What’s Your Favorite Sound?

Paige’s favorite sound is her happy dogs greeting her when she arrives home. (And who doesn’t LOVE that sound?)

Bernice’s favorite sounds of the beach, the waves rolling in and out, but probably not the sound of the seagulls.

& Melissa loves the sound of snow falling. (But we don’t want to think of snow in May!)

Thinking about all of the different sounds that we love makes us think of how many sounds those with hearing loss are missing out on – don’t forget to commit one hour in the May to improved hearing. One hour with our Audiologists can change your life!

Call to arrange an appointment with us! Just one hour! (519) 961-9285

 

May is Better Hearing Month!

Who’s ready to kick off Better Hearing Month?!?

For the entire month of May we will be celebrating…US!  By us, we mean – Doctors of Audiology, Audiologists!

While that may sound a bit self-serving, celebrating US means focusing on what we can do for you!

Through daily blog posts for the month of May, we will show you all of the ways that we can help you, your family members, friends, and co-workers with improved hearing health.

Our main goal is to help you improve your quality of life through better hearing and balance. Your EARS connect you to the people you love and the activities you love to do – it is imperative that we celebrate this!

In the spirit of Us: Doctors of Audiology, we absolutely LOVE —–>  this video  <——  It shows one of the many reasons why we wanted to become Audiologists.

So cheers to us, and Better Hearing Month! #BHSM 

P.S. Best of luck to the #Essex73s taking on Port Hope tonight! We’re rooting for you! Bring home the Schmalz Cup!

 

Breaking Tinnitus News!

A huge advancement in the study of tinnitus was made recently as researchers were able to map the tinnitus pathways!

A 50 year old man with bilateral (both ears) tinnitus underwent two days of extensive brain mapping.

Hopefully this ground-breaking tinnitus advancement will lead to the evolution of medications or procedures to alleviate tinnitus in the near future!

Read the whole journal article here!

If you or someone you love suffers from tinnitus, there is help! The Doctors of Audiology at The Hearing & Dizziness Clinic have a special interest in tinnitus. Call us at (519) 961-9285 to arrange a Tinnitus Evaluation!

April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day 2015

This April The Hearing & Dizziness Clinic is lighting it up blue for Autism Awareness! #LIUB

Susan Eichert from the Autism Treatment Network answers the question below in a recent article published on AustismSpeaks.org:

Our child has autism, will an ordinary hearing test work for him? Who should we see and what can we do?

Our professional view is much the same as Susan’s. Her advice is useful for parents of all children – she recommends seeing an Audiologist who has experience testing children behaviorally – that is, with having a child respond to words or beeps or interacting with sounds through play. Some children do not tolerate headphones, and that’s OK. At The Hearing & Dizziness Clinic we are able to test a child’s hearing using a sound field. We are also happy to have visual reinforcement audiometry in our arsenal to elicit valid responses for every developmental age – for both verbal and non-verbal children.

A reliable hearing test result for your child is something our Doctors of Audiology strive for! Call (519) 961-9285 to book your child’s hearing test appointment!

Happy Friday!

With March Break upon us, we wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that the silence of your child wearing headphones or earbuds while listen to music or video games is NOT always golden.

An iPod’s maximum volume is more than 10 times as loud as the recommended listening setting & the sensory damage caused by prolonged listening is irreversible.

With hearing loss on the rise in teens in the last decade, we urge you to implement some simple – but effective safe listening rules for your child.

1. Never allow listening through headphones for longer than 4 hours per day. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), being exposed to more than 85 decibels (about the level that teens listen to their music today) of sound for eight hours can damage your hearing.*

2. Provide your child with cool – but safe – listening gear. Such as these headphones which control the volume through filters which caps the output of sound.

3. Have your child’s hearing tested. If he or she listens to a lot of music or plays a lot of video games with headphones on, we recommend a hearing test every 2nd year. Call The Hearing & Dizziness Clinic at (519) 961-9285 today to have your child’s hearing tested!

Have a safe and fun March Break! We’ll keep our fingers crossed for nice weather!
