Highlighting Hearing Aids: Ask an Audiologist Part 2

Experience Overview

Having a child identified with hearing loss and fitted with hearing aids may be overwhelming at times. Parents and caregivers often feel pressure to become immediate experts about all things audiology, and then find that navigating available resources can be confusing and time-consuming. 
 
If you have wished for a family-friendly, interactive opportunity for an overview of best practice related to pediatric hearing testing and hearing aid fitting, management, and troubleshooting; or if you have hoped for a live forum to ask questions related to your child’s hearing aids, then join us for Highlighting Hearing Aids Series.
 
In Highlighting Hearing Aids Series, Part 2, learners will get to Ask an Audiologist. Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions, either general or specific, about anything related to pediatric hearing aids. The submitted questions will guide the group discussion. 
 
Join Amy Birath, Pediatric Audiologist, Speech-Language Pathologist, and Certified Listening and Spoken Language Specialist in this interactive learning experience to increase your knowledge, skill, and confidence to support your child with hearing loss who is fitted with hearing aids.
