At Sunshine Cottage, our team of audiologists serve as the student’s educational and primary audiologist. Our goal is to make sure each child has consistent access to sound, which is necessary for optimal speech and language development. We work together with the child’s family and all members of the child’s professional team.

Audiological services that are provided to students enrolled at Sunshine Cottage include:

  • Comprehensive hearing evaluations for all students
  • To ensure appropriate access to sound for each student’s speech, language and listening development, audiologists collaborate with each student’s educational team.
  • Earmold impressions and fitting
  • Hearing aid programming and verification for the student’s hearing loss using recommended pediatric settings
  • Programming for Cochlear, Med El and Advanced Bionics Cochlear Implant (CI) processors
  • Fitting and management of school personal assistive technology equipment (also known as FM)
  • Daily listening checks of hearing equipment (hearing aids, cochlear implants, BAHA, and FM) to make sure each child has access to sound
