Helping people hear better is the primary mission of QCNC and we really love it when we can help kids! So we were thrilled to be able to donate $1293.24 to the Thompson School District Audiology Department. The money will be used to purchase two new hearing aids and disposable ear tips to connect the aids to the ear. The district audiologist will be able to program these hearing aids to match the hearing loss of individual students who need to borrow them while their own hearing aids are being repaired. She will also be able use them to demonstrate the benefit they provide to students who have never worn hearing aids before. This will be a helpful tool to assist students and parents in deciding to purchase hearing aids and allow the audiologist the opportunity to counsel and assist families more effectively right in her office. By building a positive experience and appropriate expectations, the audiologist can prepare the students and their parents to have a successful experience when they purchase their own hearing aids.
