998 Spring 2019 Hearing Aids: Beware and Be Wise!
Friday, 1:00–2:30, May 10
Instructor: Bonnie O’Leary
This session reviews hearing loss, the hearing evaluation, and the differences between an audiologist and a hearing instrument specialist. It explains the audiogram, telecoil and bluetooth features, and looks at the types and styles of hearing aids, their benefits, and limitations. Participants will also learn what devices can be used in conjunction with hearing aids and what is available for folks who aren’t ready for the hearing aid adventure but want something to help them in specific listening situations.
