Assistive Listening Devices

There are devices beyond hearing aids to help a person with their hearing comprehension. At Parker Hearing Institute, we do not sell these accessory devices, but can help you find reliable resources to purchase them for yourself if interested. We are only interested in selling you what you need for your hearing health, nothing more.

Below you can find a list describing the purpose of some hearing accessory devices. In the description are hyperlinks to reliable websites that sell these items.

Assistive Listening Devices

An assistive listening device (ALDs) is a personal amplifier that can be worn around the neck. This device can be used to increase the volume of face to face conversations by amplifying the voice of the person you are speaking to. All modern hearing aids have this same power, but this device can be used for the most minor cases of hearing loss. Click here to be brought the webpage of a verified seller of ALDs.

Alerting Devices

Alerting Devices can be connected to a telephone, doorbell, or other alarm that will create a loud sound or blinking lights to alert someone with a hearing loss that the connected device is being used. It allows for easier recognition of actions within a household. Alerting devices can be found at the website here.

Augmentative Communication Devices

Augmentative communication device (AACs) can range from simple devices to more complex electronics. They are designed to aid people with communication disorders as a way to express themselves and converse with others. The simple devices can be objects such as picture boards. The complex devices can be computer programs which translate text to speech. AACs can be purchased by clicking the link here.
