If a hearing aid is suitable for your child then the type of hearing aid chosen for fitting would be agreed with you in advance, and based on many factors, including the child’s hearing loss, ear shape, lifestyle, aesthetic preference, age and dexterity. We are not bound to any specific hearing aid manufacturer so that the best hearing aid can be chosen for your child. This appointment involves setting up the hearing aid according to your child’s prescription (based on their hearing test) and verified using real ear measurements. All the controls and maintenance will be explained and any additional listening devices (for example devices that link their aid to the TV) will be paired to the instruments. We will evaluate your child’s responses to wearing the new devices.
