Sažetak

 

Posledice oštećenja sluha su brojne, a kao najteža se navodi poremećaj usmene komunikacije, što menja i čovekovu ličnost, sputava ostale sposobnosti i značajno utiče na psihičke, emocionalne i socijalne aspekte života. Nedostatak ili narušen kvalitet auditivnih informacija povezan je i sa slabim samopoštovanjem, emocionalnom ranjivošću, društvenom izolacijom i slabljenjem kognitivnih funkcija. Da bi se celovito sagledalo stanje osoba sa oštećenjem sluha, važno je ispitati njihov kvalitet života, kao i zadovoljstvo koje osećaju tokom izvođenja i učestvovanja u svakodnevnim aktivnostima kod kuće, u društvenoj zajednici i široj okolini. Dosadašnja istraživanja u svetu pokazala su da je kvalitet života osoba sa oštećenjem sluha niži od kvaliteta života osoba bez ovog oštećenja, kao i da razlike u strategijama auditivne rehabilitacije menjaju i kvalitet života u celini. Blagodati od pravovremene amplifikacije su mnogostruke i u velikoj meri doprinose kvalitetu života osoba sa oštećenjem sluha koji je očigledno narušen osnovnim teškoćama i problemima koje ovo stanje sa sobom nosi.

 

Ključne riječi

kvalitet života, oštećenje sluha, kvalitet života osoba sa oštećenjem sluha, amplifikacija, auditivna rehabilitacija

 

 

 

Abstract

 

The consequences of hearing impairment are numerous, and the most severe is the disorder of oral communication, which changes a person's personality, restricts other abilities and significantly affects the psychological, emotional and social aspects of life. Lack or impaired quality of auditory information is also associated with low self-esteem, emotional vulnerability, social isolation and weakening of cognitive functions. In order to fully understand the condition of people with hearing impairment, it is important to examine their quality of life, as well as the satisfaction they feel while performing and participating in daily activities at home, in the community and the wider environment. Previous research in the world has shown that the quality of life of people with hearing impairment is lower than the quality of life of people without this impairment, and that differences in auditory rehabilitation strategies change their quality of life. The benefits of amplification are manifold and greatly contribute to the quality of life of people with hearing impairment, which is obviously impaired by the basic difficulties and problems that this condition brings with it.


Key words:

quality of life, hearing impairment, quality of life of people with hearing impairment, amplification, auditory rehabilitation
