of parents I belong to was discussing the experiences each of us had
when our child was diagnosed. Parent's
Wish List for Audiologists was a list of things we came up with that
we felt would have been beneficial for us to have learned from the
audiologist, things we had to learn the hard way. It was put online by
my very good friend with the hopes that it would help audiologists know
what types of things would be helpful for them to pass along to parents.
It has since been refined to this new version of the
Parent's Wish List for Audiologists.
from Carol Flexer - I put up this page because I'm often asked for
supporting evidence on how hearing loss can affect a child and the
importance of maintaining appropriate amplification.

Oliver Gets Hearing Aids - Oliver the elephant is fitted with hearing
instruments. The story explains the hearing aid fitting process and the
reactions of Oliver's friends and family. This is a perfect way to introduce
the idea of hearing instruments to a young hearing impaired child, but is also
a wonderful story for all children.

|A parent sent me the following tip:
I thought that the following information
could be useful for other parents whose children refuse to cooperate
during In-the-Ear Probe Microphone Test. Our son used to rip off his
hearing aids the moment the probe was inserted under the ear mold. Last
week, we eventually succeeded in performing of In-the Ear Probe
Microphone Test after my wife came up with the brilliant idea: we
brought in a portable TV with built-in VCR and let Nathan watch his
favorite cartons with muted sound. He was so preoccupied with cartoons
that didn't resist the testing.
