ALDA (late-deafened adults)

ALDA was formed in Chicago, Illinois in 1987. Most of those that gathered there were total strangers who had never met or talked to another deafened person, yet they found themselves wonderfully comfortable with one another. There was an unspoken feeling of understanding and patience with each other's communication difficulties. The marvelous sense of fellowship lasted and led to more social gatherings and self help support groups, which swiftly evolved into the Association of Late Deafened Adults (ALDA). Today, ALDA's membership is international in scope. ALDA works collaboratively with other organizations around the world serving the needs of late-deafened people and extends a welcome to everyone, late deafened or not, who supports our goals.

Mike Cohen's Site

I am a small child in bed with the flu. It is quiet now, time to go to sleep - yet impossible. Bedtime, and I am hearing a slight ringing in my right ear. I put my finger in my ear, but the noise continues. Cup the ear; still nothing stops the sound. [A train whistle somewhere in the distance distracts me - but only for an instant.

Netherlands - Tinnitus & Hyperacusis Commissie van de NVVS

Een aantal mensen die slechthorend zijn, heeft ook last van tinnitus. Dit is een ooraandoening waarbij mensen in één of beide oren geluiden horen die niet van buiten afkomstig zijn. Het lawaai kan een gerinkel of geklingel zijn, zoals de letterlijke vertaling luidt van het Latijnse woord tinnire, waar de naam tinnitus aan is ontleend. Maar iemand kan ook last hebben van suizen, zoemen, sissen of fluiten. Soms hoort men het geluid van klokken, bellen, wind- en zeegeluiden. Ook komt het voor dat men diergeluiden hoort, met name krekelgeluiden en tsjilpen. Het geluid is meestal voortdurend aanwezig, hoog of laag, hard of zacht, of afwisselend hard en zacht.
