If you have a child that is wearing a hearing aid, they may need a little extra help throughout the school day. Depending on their hearing aid and the size of their class, they may not be able to hear everything that goes on in the class directly. For instance, if their class is in a large auditorium, they may not be able to hear students on the other side of the big room. If they are in gym class with a lot of noise going on at once in a room that produces echoes, it can be difficult to keep up. Here are three ways your child can carry a recording device to help in conjunction with their hearing aid. 

Watch recorders

Due to the increase in technology, there are a number of smart watches that are on the market. Some of these watches feature a recording setting so that your student can press a button and begin to record in any class. Being able to record all lectures and lessons, plus any instructions for after school activities, means that your child will be more informed when completing their homework or when studying for a class. Be sure that the watch does not have any internet capabilities so that teachers do not wish to confiscate it during test time. 

Recording necklace

A recording necklace is a brand new piece of technology that works for those who have hearing aids. The necklace can be used to record and replay things that are said during class. Putting on a necklace is easier than a watch for children who are younger and for those who have school districts that have banned wearing smart watches throughout the day. The necklace is also closer to the hearing aid, as it sits on the chest, which makes it easy for quick replays. 

Audio recording pens 

Though much more expensive than a normal pen, a voice recording pen is a device that can be activated with the touch of a button. This is one of the easiest ways to record for those who are older or in professional environments at times. This way, you do not have to worry about the necklace or watch clashing, or not being allowed with your students uniform. The pen works best in smaller classroom environments, but can be taken out and played almost anywhere without disrupting many people, such as after school programs or single study rooms inside of libraries.
