Roger technology for children


When hearing aids aren’t enough

Roger technology can help children hear over noise and distanceEven when your child is wearing the very latest hearing aid technology there will still be situations where they will struggle to hear and understand the voice of the speaker. As children learn speech and language from what they hear it is very important that your child is exposed to as much speech as possible in as many situations as possible. The main situations where they will struggle is when there is many people talking at once, background noise or a distance to overcome. And it is situations like this where Roger can help.

What is it?

Roger is the latest digital technology that bridges the understanding gap, in noise and over distance, by wirelessly transmitting the speaker’s voice directly to the child wearing the receivers on their hearing aids. As it brings the speaker’s words directly into the ear, it boosts speech understanding and enhances learning.
