Hearing devices for children and teens with hearing loss have evolved significantly over the past few years. Remote microphone systems (RMS) have been used to improve students’ auditory access to the teacher’s voice and while this technology has become very sophisticated in its feature set, little attention has been given to the importance of its design and usability by school-based professionals. This webinar introduces the new RMS from Oticon, the EduMic. Webinar attendees learn about the technology in EduMic and the research studies completed to support the use of this new piece of classroom technology for children with hearing loss.

The ability to selectively attend to what is important and relevant is essential for us as listeners to navigate through the complexities of sound environments throughout the day. This ability is important for successful speech communication and social participation and is restricted in individuals with a hearing impairment. We introduce the concept of selective attention and then focus on a novel objective technique to assess selective attention using electroencephalography (EEG). We present the research findings and what this means for your clients fitted with Oticon Opn S™.
