Auburn’s Speech and Hearing Clinic to hold annual hearing aid open house

AUBURN – The Auburn University Speech and Hearing Clinic will hold its annual hearing aid open house July 14-16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

This event is free and open to adults with confirmed hearing loss who are experiencing difficulty hearing and understanding speech, especially in challenging listening situations, and who are candidates for the use of hearing devices.

The open house will be hosted by the class of 2013 Doctor of Audiology students.

Services will be provided by a team consisting of graduate students, members of the audiology clinical faculty and a hearing aid company representative.

After a hearing test is administered, an appropriate hearing aid will be selected for demonstration. The hearing aid will be programmed for the individual’s hearing needs, and the participant will be able to listen to state-of-the-art hearing aids.

To make an appointment, call the Speech and Hearing Clinic at (334) 844-9600 by Friday, July 9. Each appointment lasts about an hour. Hearing devices will be available for purchase.

The products that will be showcased during the open house were voted the best new product at the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) convention in April. They can connect to cell phones, land line phones, iPods and computers through Bluetooth technology.

For those who only want a hearing test, hearing screening services are available to the community each semester. For more information about future screening services, call (334) 844-9600.
