Troubleshooting hearing devices for students with hearing loss

A previous blog topic covered the basic components of hearing devices but what do you do when a student comes to you and says their hearing aid/cochlear implant isn’t working? It’s helpful to have a few tools in your tool bag to troubleshoot the device.  Watch these short quick tip video clips to help you work out the problem. The next time a student comes to you with a device issue, you’ll have more tools to help you figure out the problem and fix it before contacting parents or the pediatric audiologist!
