NexGen Hearing has an informative series of videos, “Dr. Ted Talks Audiology©”, featuring Dr. Ted Venema. Dr. Ted has an amazing gift for explaining many common hearing issues in a way that makes it engaging and easy to understand. We are excited to start showcasing these educational videos on a regular basis. Dr. Ted has even graciously agreed to add his contributions to these upcoming posts!

To kick off this series, we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Ted Venema, and provide you with a little about his background:

“Ted Venema, Ph.D., earned a BA in Philosophy at Calvin College in 1977, and an MA in Audiology at Western Washington University in 1988. After working for three years as a clinical Audiologist at The Canadian Hearing Society in Toronto, he went back to school and completed a PhD in Audiology at the University of Oklahoma in 1993. Ted is now a consultant and educator, and continues to give presentations on hearing, hearing loss and hearing aids. He is also the author of a textbook, Compression for Clinicians, which has been updated as a 3rd edition in 2017.”

Untreated hearing loss may lead to an increased risk of disability and dementia in older adults, according to a 25 year study. Additionally, men experiencing hearing loss in this study also showed a greater risk of depression. Fortunately, for participants who used hearing aids, these risks were significantly decreased.

Communicating with others can be challenging for individuals with hearing loss. They may even decide to avoid social gatherings altogether, which only leads to greater feelings of isolation and separation. Feelings of frustration are natural, but it is important to remember that the entire family is impacted by hearing loss! To improve communication in your home, try to make sure that what you’ve said has been heard, and let others know whether or not they’ve been heard.

If you believe someone in your family has untreated hearing loss, encourage them to have their hearing tested. http://bit.ly/NexGen-Hearing-Test
