Hearing aids

I am needing some advice. I have a 12 yr old daughter who has Down Syndrome, sensory issues and hearing loss. She has been wearing hearing aids for the last 4 years. She took to wearing them from the minute she got them which was amazing. We were ready for a battle. However the battle has come now in the last 6 months. We are to a point where she won't wear them at all. Fights like crazy to keep them out. We have checked everything from the tubes in her ears to the volume of the aids. Has anyone had a situation like this? I can't figure out what has changed??

Re: Hearing aids

I wear hearing aids....and sometimes they just feel uncomfortable and I have to take them out.

Also if the battery dies, they act like ear plugs and I can't hear anything! Very disturbing!
