Having Hearing Aids

Having Hearing Aids - Peter AugustineOticon pediatricsWritten by 9 year old Peter Augustine, in 2003, this colorful booklet describes Peter’s experience as a young boy with hearing loss, the hearing test procedure and what it’s like to wear and rely on hearing aids. All text and illustrations are by Peter. Made available by Oticon.

The hearing aids described in this book are dated but this would act as a prompt with the student about how his hearing aids are different and better! Because it was written by an 8 year old, this book will appeal to young children and they can compare their experiences with what Peter went through and how he felt about it.

Developing Skills Related to Hearing Status

BSIAudiology Self-Advocacy Checklist-ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (ASAC-ES)

Audiology Self-Advocacy Checklist-MIDDLE SCHOOL (ASAC-ES)

Audiology Self-Advocacy Checklist-HIGH SCHOOL (ASAC-ES)

These checklists contains skills that students should develop during elementary, middle and high school related to their hearing status. To complete the checklist, enter the date the topic is introduced and then track performance using the progress levels (1, 2, or 3). If the skill has not yet been introduced (NI) the item is included but does not receive a score. If the skill is not applicable for a student, note NA and eliminate that item in the overall scoring. Specific skills that are being addressed may also be recorded as objectives on the student’s IEP. Skills should be re-evaluated at least annually. Follow the scoring directions at the bottom to obtain an overall performance level. A mastery level of 90-100% indicates the student’s audiology self-advocacy skills are functioning at the proficient level. If proficiency is not reached when the student transitions to middle school, work should continue on the deficient skills.
