SOUND BITES: Ariele

Sound Bites Ariele

“This was the FM system I used 20 years ago when I was a child with hearing loss. It’s amazing how hearing technology has changed. Back then, it wasn’t as simple as connecting a receiver to a hearing aid or implant. Now, it’s better, more efficient, more reliable. Here’s a polaroid of me as a preschooler with my educational audiologist. I had her support until I graduated from high school. Now, I’m a Teacher of the Deaf. And when I am working with a kiddo who is frustrated with their FM, I like to share this story. I hope it gives them some perspective about how far hearing technology has come.”
