6. Susan Zeder - Mother Hicks: Questions And Answers About Deafness
Answers questions such as what does it mean to be deaf, what causes deafness, and how do people who can't hear learn to speak.
Main Page Susan Zeder's Contribution to Theater The Plays of Susan Zeder A Chronology ... Credits Questions and Answers About Deafness What does it mean to be deaf? It means that even with a hearing aid, a person cannot understand spoken conversation. One may hear sounds, but not loudly or precisely enough to rely upon them. Many people now use the term "hearing-impaired" since the word "deaf" causes so many misunderstandings. However, both terms are still used. What do deaf or hearing-impaired people hear? Everybody's hearing is different. But there are two basic types of hearing loss, or hearing impairment: a decibel loss or a frequency loss. A decibel loss means that everything a person hears is quieter than it would be for a person with normal hearing. A frequency loss means that some sounds are quieter to the person than others. Usually, a person with a frequency loss misses the high tones. What causes deafness?

8. Congenital Deafness And Its Recognition
Highly technical paper concerning congenital hearing loss in cats and dogs froma veterinary perspective.
Veterinary Clinics of North America: Small Animal Practice - Special Issue: Pediatrics - July, 1999 Congenital Deafness and Its Recognition George M. Strain, PhD Professor of Neuroscience, Veterinary Physiology, Pharmacology and Toxicology, School of Veterinary Medicine; and Associate Vice Chancellor, Office of Research and Graduate Studies, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 70803 This work was supported by Grant No. 1R15DC01128-01 from the National Institutes of Health and by a grant from the American Kennel Club. George M. Strain, PhD Comparative Biomedical Sciences School of Veterinary Medicine Louisiana State University Baton Rouge, LA 70803 (225) 578-9895 (fax) Synopsis Congenital deafness in dogs and cats is primarily of the hereditary sensorineural form associated with white pigmentation genes, although acquired forms of deafness are possible. Highest prevalence is seen in white cats, especially those with blue eyes, and the Dalmatian, with many other dog breeds affected to some extent. This deafness results from degeneration of the cochlear blood supply at age 3 to 4 weeks, presumably resulting from suppression of melanocytes by the white (cat) or merle or piebald (dog) genes. Mechanism of inheritance is not understood for most breeds. Such animals should not be bred and may present liabilities for their owners. Objective diagnosis of deafness, especially when unilateral, relies on the brain stem auditory evoked response, an electrodiagnostic test where electrical activity in response to a click stimulus is recorded from the scalp using needle electrodes and a special purpose computer. Client counseling guidelines are presented.
