Have you ever wondered how glasses have become so cool, but hearing aids just haven’t quite caught on yet? We believe it’s time to start thinking about hearing aids differently. So come along for the ride and let’s send our students back to school this year in style.
The 2020 school year is about to start, and it’s an unusual year to say the very least. The coronavirus pandemic is sweeping through the world and schools are deciding how and whether to teach in person. We thought it would be good to revisit some tips for teaching a student with hearing loss.
There are some very big challenges that come with hearing aids and children. One of the major questions is “How long should I have my child wear their hearing device each day?” Many children, especially young children, don’t connect the dots between wearing their hearing device and being able to hear better. They may not like wearing them, which may cause some tension in your house if you want them to wear their hearing aids all day.
Hearing aids and glasses. Can they really work well together or are they forever like oil and water? From what we understand, this is a common question that audiologists receive when fitting their patients with new hearing instruments. The answer is YES, hearing aids and glasses can be worn together, and actually be a comfortable experience.
