Telecoils. Tipsheet: Serving Students Who Are Hard of Hearing
Davis, Cheryl D.; Atcherson, Samuel R.
Telecoils, now available on both hearing aids and cochlear implants, can make a vast difference in the quality of sound for an individual with hearing loss. Hearing aids and cochlear implants may be very effective alone, but when noise is introduced, the hearing device by itself may not be able to adequately compensate. This is why assistive listening devices, such as FM systems, often are recommended. Nonetheless, if the individual does not have telecoils, he may not be able to make the best use of this assistive technology. This tipsheet provides definitions of key terminology, discusses key concepts, and presents tips for the proper use of telecoils. (Lists 6 resources.)
