Upcoming Webinars for Winter 2021
February 11 Hearing Aids and Connectivity For Parents 12 PM
This webinar will be presented by educational Audiologist, Bernadine Kielley, who works with the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District. The most common questions we hear from parents are about how their child’s hearing aids can connect to other devices, such tablets, computers or televisions. Bernadine will break down how hearing aids can connect to other devices so parents can help their children use devices to hear better so they feel more included with their peers. There will also be an opportunity to ask Bernadine questions.
