It has been a long road, but we were notified this week that the school went ahead and purchased the equipment Emma needed to be able to hear in class.
O happy day!
I wasn't sure how it would work, but after trying out the system and seeing the HUGE difference it made in Emma's life, the school agreed that she needed the equipment. And it's hers for as long as she's in middle school.
Of course, we have to do this all over again when she starts high school, but i'll fight that battle when we get there.
|This is the transmitter. The teacher wears this around their neck with a little microphone.|
|This is the receiver. Emma wears one at the bottom of each hearing aid and it puts the teacher's voice right into her hearing aids. She can hear no matter what the noise in the classroom.|
