Pesons with hearing loss know there is a difference between hearing and understanding. Even normal hearing persons can expeience this difficulty when someone calls to them from an adjacent room. The voice is effen heard, but the message is not clear or is jumbled. This is exactly the problem many hear-impared people experience in conversation. This happens because a peson with a high frequency hearing loss misses such sounds as "f", "s", "z", "oh", "th", '~", "k", and "zh". If you say to a hearing-impared person, for example, "sit still while Sandy's friends think", it may be heard as "It will while Andy friend ing." Because a person with a hearing impairment does not hear a sentence or question clearly, it may be misunderstood. This causes many problems such as a supervisor's or customer's request that is ignored, causing job performance to suffer. In addition, meetings, movies, parties, theatrical peformances, and religious services may no longer provide the benefits they once did. Friends and loved ones can become frustrated after continual- ly repeating what they said and continuing to be misunderstood. If you have this sort of problem, and suspect that it is medical, please see your physican. For evaluation of hearing ability and to find out what can be done to improve it see an audiologist. If you have a friend, neighbor, or family member with this problem you can try the following five suggestions: 1. Ask the person which is their better ear. Then stand on the side closest to their best ear and speak clearly. 2. Face the person so that your mouth can easily be seen to be lip read. 3. Keep objects, like your pen, hands, cigarette or pipe away from your face so that your lips are not obstructed. 4. Speak distinctly with clear-cut articulation but do not exaggerate or over pronounce words. 5. Re-phrase or re-word whatyou said if the person fails to understand you. You can't make a hearing- impaired peson hear you, but you can work at helping the person understand better. Often in conversations, it is helpful if they know the subject that is being discussed. With just a little bit of effort on the part of those who have normal hearing, those with hearing impairments can and will experience more pleasant and accurate conversations: Funds secured for transportation systems Govenor Arch A.
