    If you're at uni, have you applied for disabled students allowance? (DSA) They should supply you with equipment and possibly a note taker. This should help you with things like being able to hear what's being said in a lecture hall.

    Hi! I'm deaf in one ear too! hardly every find anyone on here! I use phonic CROS hearing aids- what do you use?
    I'm only year 13 but my school bought me the Phonak roger pen that works amazingly in lecture hall settings, smaller groups, 1-on-1- basically everything it's revolutionised my ability to hear!
    As Tiger Rag said, I've been told I am eligible for DSA at uni so maybe look into this?
    Also maybe ask if you can get copy of the lecture slides in advance, I've found in class I can follow a lot better if I have the prompts to what is being said in front of me...

    The same here but I'm in year 12 and wear two hearing aids instead. What I do is focus on lip movement(I know it sounds wrong!) whilst a teacher is speaking, I also sit near the front and focus on deciding upon what I should write down, what would be helpful to write down and what not to write down. This normally makes it easier for me to make sure I don't miss out on the details

    Hi Eleanor,
    I have not heard (lol) of a roger pen, so will look into that thank you.
    I already print out slides if i can, it tends to be the discussions i miss out on.
    I will be starting a degree in counselling in September.Must be mad at my age!
