Why using Roger technology at home benefits my hard of hearing child

Why using Roger technology at home benefits my hard of hearing child

The day our son’s teacher let us take home the Phonak Roger FM System, was the day we realized this vital piece of technology needed to be used not just at school, but at home too.

Our son, Ayden, has mild to severe hearing loss in both ears that was identified at birth. When he turned three, he received an IEP plan (Individualized Education Plan). For Ayden to be successful in an inclusive classroom he needed a number of vital pieces. An inclusive classroom has both mainstream students and students with IEP’s. Included in his IEP plan were two essential pieces: The Roger FM transmitter, and a Hearing Itinerant.

If you are new to hearing loss, it can be hard to understand and adjust to at first. It may feel like you are the only one in that situation. The good news is you are not alone and volunteering is a way to pull you out of your isolation through helping others.

There comes a stage for most of us when we have our hearing aids and we begin the slow process of learning to live with them and with our hearing loss. All too often this is a time of isolation. Even those who have loving supportive family and friends can still feel very much on their own during this often worrying time, during the hearing loss journey.
