TRANSITION

Hearing Devices

To help manage your hearing loss there are a number of different devices that are used depending on the extent and type of your hearing loss.

The main types are:

  • Behind the aid hearing aids
  • Bone conduction hearing devices (BCHD)
  • Cochlear implants

You can find out more on the tabs above about what these are, having them fitted and looking after your device.

Where possible, we want you to be able to successfully and consistently use your devices. There are many ways we can support you if you are having issues with wearing your device. We can support with programming and volume control, explore a range of retention options, as well as working with you to address specific difficulties you may have using your technology at home, school, work or university. There are many reasons why it may be difficult for you to wear your processors. It is important that you contact the team if you are experiencing any difficulties, as we can offer you individual advice and guidance. If you wear a behind the ear hearing aid, the audiology team will be able to provide advice and support. The hearing implant team can help those of you with a cochlear implant or bone conduction hearing device. 

There is also lots of technology that you can use to support you managing your hearing loss. You can read more about this on the independent living tab under life choices or here. As part of transition you are supported in talking more responsibility for managing your condition and caring for your hearing devices. The children's hearing team will talk to you about this and help you to do so to help you be ready for adult services.
