Pediatric Hearing Aids
From the moment they wake up until they go back to sleep, everything is still to be discovered. Playing, learning and sharing is all they care about, so even though they are the little ones at home, they often teach us great lessons. Their days are full of surprises and the desire to do everything, even the impossible. Hearing aids for children follow their intense and exciting rhythm, so that nothing stops them and they don't miss anything in this world (or in the other worlds they imagine full of superheroes).
Do you think your child needs pediatric hearing aids?
What makes you think so? Have you noticed that he/she is more easily distracted at home? Has his/her performance at school decreased? If you have been thinking about this for days, in that case, the best thing to do is to follow your instinct as a parent and ask a professional. After performing the relevant tests, simple and quick, you will be able to know if there is any hearing ailment that requires the use of pediatric hearing aids. And you know, we are at your side.
At Claso we offer you a wide variety of hearing aids for all types of customers. That also includes pediatric hearing aids, because we care about the health of the little ones.
In addition, the specifications required for a small child to have a perfectly fitting hearing aid are not a trivial matter and must be treated with great care and knowledge.
Hearing loss in young or growing children, whatever its level of severity, is a problem that is sometimes difficult not only to deal with, but also to detect. Depending on their age, a child may not be able to explain exactly what their problem or ailment is. Even if he has trouble hearing in class, he may be afraid to express it in case he feels rejected by his circle of friends.
During an audiometry, his behavior is different from that of an adult, and some coordination actions required of a patient are difficult for a child to understand. This, added to the lack of patience and attention span they usually have, it goes without saying that audiologists who are experts in dealing with children are needed to be able to perform a proper audiometry.
This is an essential step if you suspect that your child may have hearing problems, some kind of ear injury or any related ailment that causes hearing loss.
From Claso we encourage all parents to take their children to a specialist in pediatric audiometry to be able to detect a very relevant problem but that, once it has been found, has several solutions at your fingertips. This is always a source of confidence for everyone.
Do children adapt to wearing a pediatric hearing aid?
The first thing we tend to think is that, if adults often find it difficult, wearing a hearing aid can be an unpleasant experience for a child, especially in terms of esthetics, but also in terms of comfort. Will they be able to play the same way? What will happen if they go camping for a few days? And in summer? How will they have to take care of it?
The key is to see hearing aids as allies that are not only part of everyday life but also make everything easier.
It is very important that at home, parents treat this issue naturally because children will follow the same pattern. It is also important to communicate with the school, so that they are aware of the new situation at all times.
Fortunately, the pediatric hearing aids that you will find in Claso can make this process less uncomfortable and easier to handle. As a general rule, children's hearing aids are smaller and less aesthetically intrusive, and they are relatively simple to use.
Meet some of the hearing aids for children
One of the models you will find in Claso is the Sky Marvel hearing aids, by Phonak. From the moment the little ones put them on, they notice an unparalleled sound quality that makes them adapt quickly to wearing them. With AutoSense Sky OS, the first operating system designed specifically for pediatric hearing aids, your child will understand speech in noise better and will have to make less of an auditory effort in everyday life. Because then, he will be able to concentrate on what matters most to him.
The Resound brand, with its Up Smart range of hearing aids, offers the best sound quality available to help your child at any stage of their personal growth. In addition, they can use them as wireless stereo headphones connected to their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. So your child has more opportunities than ever to connect with family and friends. And if he uses an Android smartphone he can also make calls or listen to stereo music wirelessly with the ReSound Phone Clip + accessory.
Thanks to the ReSound Smart app, you can even keep discreet control over your child's hearing aids - did you know you can start or stop the sound transmitters, check the status of the hearing aid and switch programs? And, most comforting of all, for them and for you, you can locate lost hearing instruments with the "Finder" function.
