  1. I work as an slp in a school for children with special needs. There are approximately 30 students with hearing related issues that require aids or implants. Two of our students don’t have coverage and are present with difficulty affording the necessary equipment. Do you assist with fm systems as well? How much money are the recipients on average receiving from their grant to assist in covering their hearing aid equipment.

    Thank you,

    1. Chaya, thank you for your comment! We consider every application on the merits it provides support and improvement for the individual student. You can see our application and encourage the students’ parents to fill it out and make a request. Honestly, the funding amounts vary by vendor and need, and we have supported assistive hearing devices before. Our Board takes great care in seeing how we can best help as many kids as we can. We appreciate you!
