Auditory Accessibility and Hearing Assistive Technologies

Presentation PDF

This presentation focuses on new and emerging digital hearing assistive technologies (HAT) that provide hearing access in the classroom, home and other listening environments for infants and children with hearing loss. New digital HAT for both hearing aids and implant devices will be examined including Bluetooth microphones, made for iphone (Mfi) compatible hearing aids and implants and how they provide hearing access. Federal laws accommodating HAT in educational settings for students deaf/hard of hearing (IDEA, 504 and ADA) will be reviewed.

Objectives
  • Participants will be able to identify new and emerging digital hearing assistive technologies that provide hearing access for children that are deaf/hard of hearing
  • Participants will be able to explain how hearing assistive technology benefits children that are deaf/hard of hearing
  • Participants will be able to describe situations where hearing assistive technologies benefit children that are deaf/hard of hearing
