Chattering Children is raising funds to stock a hearing device supply cabinet, complete with cables, ear hooks, batteries and accessories from each manufacturer. This will enable us to quickly provide children what they need when their devices break. In our effort to serve children with hearing loss and help them succeed, we need to have the necessary supplies and parts on hand so that they always have access to sound.
The therapies Chattering Children offers can only be effective if children are properly amplified. Broken and damaged equipment, the cost of batteries and replacement part delays are all factors that can leave a child with hearing loss isolated and unable to access sound. A hearing equipment supply cabinet with replacement cables, batteries, ear hooks and other parts will ensure that the children we serve have devices in working order.
With funding, we can stock a hearing device supply cabinet, complete with replacement parts, batteries and accessories from each manufacturer in order to provide children what they need to get immediate and consistent access to sound. Having a hearing equipment supplies on hand, ensures that the children we serve have working devices and timely access to replacement parts without delays due to lack of insurance coverage, high cost and lengthy shipping times.
When children do not have hearing devices in working order, they can be unable to engage in therapies, school lessons, activities and home life, which can have an impact on their development. Being able to provide full service to children with hearing loss, enables us to provide the best support and intervention possible, helping them achieve optimal outcomes.
