To bring sounds from the world into your ear and amplify them, all hearing aids rely on the same fundamental components. The majority of hearing aids are digital and all use either a standard hearing aid battery or a rechargeable battery to power them. Small microphones gather environmental noises. Digital code is generated from the incoming sound by a computer chip with an amplifier. Based on your hearing loss, your listening requirements, and the volume of the sounds around you, it analyses and modifies the sound. After that, speakers, which are often referred to as receivers, transform the amplified signals back into sound waves and transmit them to your ears.
Types of hearing aids
● Behind-the-ear (BTE)
● The receiver-in-canal (RIC) and receiver-in-the-ear (RITE)
● In The Canal (ITC)
● In The Ear (ITE)
● Completely in the canal (CIC)
● Invisible in the Canal (IIC)
Auditory Verbal Therapy
Auditory Verbal Therapy is a specialized family-centered early intervention program. We use specialized auditory verbal therapy techniques and strategies to improve listening and spoken language. AVT also provides parents and caregivers with the resources to promote the language and speech development of their child with hearing loss. Children with hearing loss need the best technology, such as cochlear implants or hearing aids, to learn to listen. They also require specialized techniques to activate the auditory cortex, the area of the brain responsible for hearing.
