DEAF STUDIES within Deaf Club

  • What a hearing test is 

  • How to read our own audiograms 

  • The different parts of the ear and how they connect 
      

Technology

  • Different types of technology available to access hearing – hearing aids; cochlear implants 

  • Different types of technology available for access within the wider community – flashing lights; alarms 

  • History of technology for DHH – history of hearing aids; TTY 

  

Deaf History

  • Deaf history in Australia and South Australia 

  • Famous and successful DHH people from our own community, the Australian wider community and the world community
