Hearing instruments for kids & teens
Today, hearing instruments for children offer not only state-of-the-art hearing technology, but also different styles, features, and colorful solutions that suit your child’s hearing needs, as well as his or her personality. They are specifically made to enhance your child’s daily life, without hindering his or her lifestyle.
Regardless of their appearance, all hearing instruments have certain characteristics in common. They are made to selectively increase the volume of the sounds your child wants to hear. So they can make soft sounds audible, while at the same time making moderate or loud sounds comfortable. No hearing instrument can solve every hearing problem or restore normal hearing, but they are designed to provide amplification so that your child can hear and understand better.
Children with hearing loss must have a medical evaluation by a licensed physician before being fitted with hearing instruments. Hearing instruments are battery powered, electronic devices with microphones that amplify sound in the ear. With technological advances, many hearing instruments today can be programmed to respond differently to individual sounds and amplify them according to the unique nature of a child’s hearing loss.
