The next in the ‘How to…’ video series from NDCS is now available – ‘How to use your hearing aid care kit’. This video gives you step-by-step instructions on daily listening checks, changing batteries and cleaning the earmould.

Don’t forget to tell us whether the video was helpful using this 2 minute survey. Thank you!

Every parent of a child who wears hearing aids will have been driven a bit loopy by a high-pitched whistling noise coming from the aids every now and again (and sometimes more frequently than that!) This whistling happens when sound leaks out of the ear and re-enters the hearing aid’s microphone creating a feedback loop. So it’s not surprising that when NDCS asked parents what information they wanted for a new information video they voted for ‘How to manage the whistling in your child’s hearing aids’.

Lots of people have watched the video in the last month and we really need your feedback on it so that we can use it to decide whether we should be developing further information videos, and on what topics, so please do complete the 2 minute online survey afterwards. Thank you!

The good news is that lots of things that cause feedback become less of a problem as children grow up including no longer growing out of their earmoulds every month. Which is a big relief for the family!
