Unilateral hearing loss


Hearing well in a multitude of situations can be particularly challenging, especially for kids and teens with unilateral hearing loss (UHL). Having solutions which allow them to fully participate and are capable of keeping up with their active lives is essential to their overall sense of well-being in and outside of the classroom.

Unique solutions for all

Due to the mixed and broad nature of UHL there is no ‘one fits all’ solution. Various and/or a combination of unique solutions is required to meet a young listeners specific needs. The particular choice of solution may even vary as kids grow and find themselves with different listening challenges.

  • When the impaired ear is aidable, the Phonak SkyTM V family of pediatric hearing aids, with its 5 models and pediatric features, is optimized for a child’s listening environment.
  • For a child with single sided deafness or unusable hearing on one ear, the Phonak CROS II behind the ear models work seamlessly with the Sky V family.  There is no manual adjustment needed for use - even with Roger.
  • For hearing in noise and over distance, the discreet RogerTM Focus receiver, worn on the normal ear and paired with a Roger microphone, provides improved speech understanding in typical classroom noise.
 

Ready for success

At Phonak, we understand the needs faced by young listeners with UHL. For this reason, we have developed a number of dedicated solutions, proven to improve kids’ access to speech even in challenging environments, for all ages and hearing losses. Designed to be easy to use and fit, while ensuring that listening remains fun, our goal is to provide all children with UHL the best possible tools in order to be ready for success.
