International Day of the Deaf

This Sunday is the International Day of the Deaf, an initiative established by the World Federation of the Deaf. Its purpose is to benefit the deaf in the world, defend the rights of the deaf, help the deaf recover, and let more people pay attention to the hearing impaired. festival.

Including the media, it is generally customary to divide the hearing impaired into a circle called the “silent world”. It is literally lyrical, as if it can immediately make up an 800-word composition.

In fact, hearing loss does not mean that no sound can be heard.

According to my country’s hearing disability assessment standards, hearing disability is divided into four levels.

Hearing Disability Level I: The structure and function of the auditory system are extremely severely damaged, and the better ears are averageHearing loss≥91dBHL, without the help of hearing aids, cannot rely on hearing for verbal communication, extremely limited in understanding and communication and other activities, and have extremely serious obstacles in participating in social life. 

Hearing Disability Level II: The structure and function of the auditory system are severely damaged. The average hearing loss of better ears is between 81-90dBHL. Without the help of hearing aids, they are severely restricted in activities such as understanding and communication, and are participating in social life. There are serious obstacles. 

Hearing Disability Level III: Moderate to severe damage to the structure and function of the auditory system, the average hearing loss of better ears is between 61-80dBHL, without the help of hearing aids, moderately limited in understanding and communication activities, and participation There are moderate obstacles in social life.

Hearing Disability Level 41: The structure and function of the auditory system are moderately damaged, and the average hearing loss in better ears is between 60-XNUMXdBHL. Without the help of hearing aids, they are slightly restricted in activities such as understanding and communication. There are mild obstacles in social life.

In other words, except for cases where the hearing loss is extremely severe and the hearing has not been compensated for many years, most hearing impaired people can hear the sound.

Although there are obstacles of varying degrees, but with the help ofHearing aidWith the help of cochlear implants, more and more hearing-impaired people can integrate into social life normally.

Although the life of the hearing impaired will be more difficult due to hearing loss, no one’s life is always smooth sailing.The stalwart without trees can also have the fragrance of flowers. Without sound hearing, it can also shine in other fields.

Hearing loss is not a mistake, it is just a disease. It is as normal as a cold and fever. It should not be discriminated against or marginalized by society.Paying attention to the hearing impaired should not be the careless praise after a distance, or the sympathy that is taken for granted. A little more down-to-earth understanding and respect is the true care.
