Some common misinformation about the deaf
There is huge lack of awareness in society about people with disabilities. In this report, we look at some of those myths and also what the reality actually is.
The most common false belief is that hearing aids restore hearing loss.
Truth is that hearing aids cannot make a deaf person hear again. They can only be used when there is loss of hearing, which can happen when people grow old.
Another myth is that deafness affects old people only. The truth is that deafness or hearing loss can occur at any age.
All types of hearing loss are the same, is another common myth.
Truth is that hearing disability is of many types and forms.
Another myth is that deaf people cannot be safe drivers. The truth is that driving is more about being able to see, than hear.
