Please could you let me know if you routinely provide children with two ear level/wireless FM receivers, or only one?
Always two - unless there are reasons to try just one (eg asymmetric loss)
If they are prescribed two hearing aids - then always two.
Working with older students - as they approach transition to alternative education post 16 or post 18 we encourage the student to 'experiment' with their radio aid system as and when to use - how to use etc so they can make informed choices about future technology they might wish to pursue. Some play with the idea of one on one off - but almost always opt for both longterm.
MLXi receivers are issued to each of the child's hearing aids depending on how responsible these children are in giving accurate feedback on any issues/problems/interference they experience.
This is an important point. They should always be set up using a test box followed by rigorous objective and subjective evaluation and on-going monitoring of effective use. Wendy McCracken's recent research on effective FM use has important lessons for everyone to note.
