Hearing loss and tinnitus can affect our ability to clearly hear the sounds around us and exploring the world of hearing aids can be overwhelming. Learn about the different types of hearing loss, the impact of hearing loss and tinnitus on communication, and hearing aid styles and the technology available. Information on the Telephone Equipment Distribution Program (TED) will also be provided.This course is offered in partnership with Minnesota Academy of Audiology and Minnesota Department of Human Services.
All Community Education participants are required to follow SPPS COVID guidelines (https://www.spps.org/safelearningplan), and all other communicated health and safety expectations. Failure to do so could result in removal from the class/program. SPPS currently requires masks for all people in a school setting (ages 2 and older), including all teachers, staff, students and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, unless they have a qualifying exemption. This includes (but is not limited to) indoor fitness classes and during culinary classes when not eating or drinking.
Presenters are members of the Minnesota Academy of Audiology (MAA) which is a professional organization made up of audiologists from around the state. An audiologist is a health care professional who is trained in evaluation and treatment of individuals with hearing loss, tinnitus, and balance disorders. Audiologists also dispense hearing aids.
