Digital assistive listening devices for elementary school: Being one of the gang

At elementary school the need to understand and be able to work with others grows as each year goes by. At the same time, the sound environment of a school is often demanding, particularly for pupils with a hearing loss. The many different background noises are amplified by hearing aids, making it harder to keep up during lessons.

Comfort Audio’s wireless assistive listening devices complement hearing aids by filtering out disturbing background noise and enhancing speech. They enable pupils with a hearing loss to play a full part in both lessons and social contexts outside school.

Help improve dialog throughout the class

The assistive devices are easy to use and have been adapted for elementary school teaching methods. One example is the push-to-talk Microphone DM10 which controls the sequence of verbal exchanges so that only one pupil can talk at a time. It supports a pupil with a hearing loss when talking to several classmates at once and helps improve dialog in the class as a whole.
