Received medical clearance for HA....now what?!
My son is turning 6 in a week, and just started Kindergarten. He has been in Early Childhood for the past three years and they were using a desktop FM system, but had a lot of behavior issues with it.
We just had a new visit to the audiologist and he is remaining 90% deaf in his right ear, with 100% in his left. We received medical clearance for a hearing aid, but now I'm lost.
I know he needs this, most specially for at school. He is such a good kid, but has issues with yelling and frustration which I think are highly linked to his hearing deficiency.
We have medical assistance with a Dean HMO, but I really have no idea where we go from here to actually GET a hearing aid and his audiologist is so hard to make contact with (there's only one pediatric audiology office in our area).
Advice? Experiences? Help!!!! I am having my second son in November and would really like to have this set up before dealing with a new baby too!!!!
