Following this thread as I am a bilateral hearing aid user planning to apply for 2021. Be interesting to see any common problems or issues that deaf students have at Uni.

If you have any specific questions or want some general advice On anything feel free to message me! Main issue for me is hearing in lectures so I use a roger pen and sit near the front. I also have a note taker in seminars and lectures and get 25% extra time in exams as other adjustments for my deafness. You can be assigned a halls room with a flashing light fire alarm and other adjustments if you let the uni know in advance. And also be sure to apply for DSA really far in advance as it takes forever!

Mildly deaf here with hyperacusis and Auditory processing disorder. Took ages to get diagnosed because apparently I cant have both hearing and sight loss. Bizarre.

My hearing loss is a rare side effect from medication I take.

Sensorineural hearing loss in both ears, ranging from moderate to severe. I hate wearing hearing aids, so I rarely wear them. No one seemed to notice at first, even with my stunted speech as a child. I am constantly asking people to repeat their names or what they just said, especially if the surrounding environment is louder than average.

being deaf isn't something to pity. we have our own culture and community and learn from each others experiences, this comment is pretty rude.

I never meant it to come across that way, I just mean I sympathise with anyone who is deaf.

Moderate to severe hearing loss in both ears (although it fluctuates so at times it's mild to moderate). Also suffer from regular tinnitus and noise sensitivity. I have BAHAs for both ears although one screw fell out last year it's replacement is delayed due to covid and tbh I don't wear them as due to my noise sensitivity they cause bad earaches even on the lowest setting

Hey folks I've had to edit a few posts as TSR doesn't permit the promotion of group chats on other platforms in order to protect the privacy of everyone who uses the site. I hope this is understandable with everyone.

My left ear is completely useless. Got a hearing aid on the right as that’s half deaf. Completely dependent on that one
