Many families consider remote microphone systems for their child with hearing loss in a classroom setting, but they're not just for school anymore!
Even in infancy, these devices can help your child hear you more clearly in any location. They can overcome problems of background noise and distance. In this webinar for families, we’ll explore how you can use remote microphones to increase both the quantity and quality of information that reaches your child’s brain - which then becomes their knowledge, skills, and understanding!
Join us as Dr. Carol Flexer, an expert pediatric audiologist, highlights the amazing benefits of using remote microphones to help your child with hearing loss. She’ll walk you through why they’re important, how they work, and ways to use them in your daily life and routines as well as at school, in the community, or during activities, like soccer practice.
