This chapter presents various modern hearing aids and assistive listening devices (ALD) in order to help parents choose the proper apparatus. Hearing aids are medical devices used to increase sound waves for better hearing and speech understanding. These are selected in accordance with the mode of communication, as per advice of the child's audiologist. The chapter provides a list of steps for parents and guardians to ensure the proper functioning of the child's device. It also discusses the assistive listening technology used at home or in a school setting, which includes FM systems, sound field amplification systems, loop systems, infrared systems, and other music sensory devices.

Keywords:   hearing aids, assistive listening devices, FM systems, sound field amplification systems, loop systems, infrared systems, music sensory devices
