In Reply to: Need help with hearing aids posted by Angela on September 24, 2000 at 21:31:22:

Our son was given hearing aids a year ago. Since he was 19 and became immediately aware of the difference, wearing them was no problem. His was a hearing loss from an illness (we still do not know what). I would suggest you take your daughter to school to visit with the hearing impaired children and teacher. PErhaps if she sees someone else with the hearing aids, it will make her less afraid. Always make sure they are turned all the way down when you put them in so she doesn't get a sudden jolt of sound. Turn them up gradually. Hope any of this helps.

: My daughter has been given hearing aids since August and we have yet to get them in her ears. When she first
: got them the audiologist just put them in her ears and turned them up. My daughter was so terrified that she hid
: under the chair. Now whenever we get the hearing aids out she will run. We have begun to play a game with her
: and I put the hearing aids to my ear and then to her ear to try to show there is nothing to be afraid of but it is not
: working. My daughter just turned 4 and is not talking because she is unable to hear properly. If there is anybody
: that have any suggestions at all about what I can do or someone I can get some advise from please let me know.
