Adelphi Students Tour Center for Hearing Health
Seventeen Speech Language Pathology students from Adelphi University toured the Center for Hearing Health’s (CHH) state-of-the-art audiology facility. Director of CHH, Dr. Susan Antonellis, gave students a firsthand look at professional hearing equipment, the screening booth and a tour of the new Audiology Mobile Van.
Antonellis went into great detail about the equipment, explaining a variety of devices to test pediatric hearing; the CaptionCall, which captions telephone calls and is designed to help people with hearing loss use the phone to stay socially connected with loved ones; and the Loop System, a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to a Telecoil setting.
