Hear and Say

For the first time on a prac placement, I was put into a class with 2 students with hearing impairments. One child had cochlear implants from a very young age while the other student had only been diagnosed with hearing problems a little over a year ago and had grommets. I was very interested in seeing what could be done to lessen or bring down some of the barries standing in the students way in the classroom. These students were supported by the Hear and Say organisation who would come into the classroom, assess the students needs and provide the teaching staff with instruments to aid in the students hearing such as a phonic ear and a microphone that was directly connected to the students hearing aid. I definitely recommend checking them out.
