9:30am - 4:00pm

This course will be of interest to Qualified and trainee Teachers of Deaf children and young people, Audiologists, Support Staff.

Hearing aid test boxes have long been considered an essential tool for teachers working with deaf children – but why do we use them, what benefits can they bring and how can we get the most out of them?

This practical session will explore the role test box measures can play in supporting deaf children and give an overview of their features and the way they are used.

Participants will be encouraged to ask questions and share their own experiences. Significant time will be allowed for hands-on experience with a variety of test boxes and a range of hearing instruments and wireless systems. All necessary equipment will be provided but participants are welcome to bring along their own test box, should they have one.

Some refreshments will be provided, please bring a packed lunch or there are options to purchase food locally.
