Hearing Aids & FM Systems
The Resource Center is currently looking to hire an audiologist. Until the position is filled, we regret that our ability to fit and loan hearing aids is temporarily limited.
The Resource Center provides hearing aid selection counseling and hearing aid loans for students and leases FM systems for schools. Contact the Resource Center online or call 573-592-2543 for more information.
Hearing Aid Bank
The Resource Center provides free hearing aid loans for children to use at school when their family cannot afford to purchase them or while a child's hearing aids are being repaired. Hearing aids are donated by community organizations. Our audiologist fits and programs the hearing aids for each student.
For those who wish to purchase hearing aids, Our Audiologist is available to assist with selection and provide fitting and programming free of charge.
FM System Leases
The Resource Center leases several types of FM systems to local school districts that find it impractical to purchase them. Options include personal FM systems, ear-level hearing aid FM systems, and individual or group soundfield FM systems. Our audiologist will work with the school to determine the best system for the individual student and classroom.
Systems are leased for the school year and must be returned at the end of the term for servicing.
Our audiologist also assists school districts with selecting and purchase FM systems when a purchase may be more cost effective than a lease.
