It’s amazing what’s possible with technology today. And hearing technology is no exception.
There are all kinds of different devices available to help your child with hearing loss and there are ways you can maximize that technology so their brain benefits from all the sounds and conversations around them. In this webinar designed specifically for families, we’ll explore these exceptional hearing devices in more detail so you know how they work for your child.
Dr. Carol Flexer, a well-known pediatric audiologist and expert, will walk you through the many available hearing technologies — hearing aids, bone-anchored systems, and cochlear implants — teaching you how they work and what to do for their care and maintenance. She’ll also offer tips on how to empower your child to advocate for themselves and their technology.
