4 Widely-Recognized Hearing Aid Brands, You’re Going to Love

Hearing loss doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t matter whether you’re old or young, an employee or retired, or anyone else, you can be affected by hearing loss at any point in your life. In fact, more than 48 million Americans have reported some degree of hearing loss in their lifetime, according to the site Healthy Hearing. One of the most common ways people tend to manage their hearing loss issues is with the help of a hearing aid.

While there are many reasons why someone might experience a loss in hearing, and there are many kinds of hearing aids on the market, their sole purpose is to amplify sound and improve the user’s quality of life. Here are the top four hearing aids that you should consider if you are suffering from hearing loss.

Win a Selection of Reading and Activity Books from Oxford University Press

Would you like to win a selection of reading and activity books tailored to the correct stage for your child?  Well at the bottom of this post you can, but first here is a little bit of info about this fantastic new range from the Oxford University Press.

Having spoken with parents of young children as part of extensive market research into home learning, OUP found that many parents were unsure which books were matched to their children’s stage of learning, and therefore struggled to identify which books to read at home. Additionally, while they wanted to support their child’s school learning at home, they wanted the process to be fun, rather than to feel like a chore tagged on to already busy lives.

To help children to make progress at home, whilst encouraging reading and learning for pleasure, OUP has created two new ranges of reading and activity books – Read with Oxford and Progress with Oxford –  and Read with Oxford Stages, a new, clear, and comprehensive six-stage levelling system to support learning progression at home.

The OxfordOwl website now hosts extensive new and free supporting materials for use at home. Not sure where to start? Try our simple test to find out which Read with Oxford Stage is best for your child, or have a look on www.oxfordowl.co.uk to find out more about each stage, including tips to support your child at home, free activities, downloadable activity sheets, and suggested reading lists.

The Freedom You Deserve

If your spouse wants to start a home business, your new or current base may not be so supportive. The same goes if the base is too far from your spouse’s new job. For many military families, living off base is the best way to facilitate becoming a two-income household.
