Hearing Aid Evaluations can be performed. The audiologist can test your child and recommend the appropriate amplification. Suggestions can be made as to how you might obtain amplification for your child.
 
New Earmolds can be made for your child with considerable savings to you. The average cost of an ear mold is $35 and payment in advance is necessary. Earmolds are also available from local hearing aid dispensers.
 
Audiology maintenance is provided through supplying batteries, cords, and other necessities for your child's aid. To ensure that your child’s hearing aid is working at all times, batteries will be provided as needed. Batteries for amplification devices are $5 for a pack of six. Other minor repairs such as tubing or hooks are provided. These services are offered as a convenience to you. If you prefer, however, you may send spare batteries to school for your child.
 
Audiology repair is offered through sending your child's aid to the appropriate manufacturer if it becomes damaged. If the hearing aid is under warranty, there is no charge by the manufacturer. Otherwise, you are responsible for the cost of repair. Cost of repair varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but is usually $100–$150 per aid. You will be notified of the factory cost, and payment must be received prior to mailing the aid.
