Audiology Update

Presented on: Tuesday, 28 January, 2014 at Auchterderran Centre, Fife


An audiology update was provided, but the main focus of the day was to look at new equipment and its use in educational and social settings.

Participants enjoyed:

"Speaking to others about possible uses of equipment. Learning how equipment is beneficial to hearing pupils (ADHD)."

"Practical and theory both used. Practical sessions helped to make sense of the theory."
