Dr. Flexer in conjunction with leading manufacturers has put together a series of mini presentations in relation to Auditory Pathway development in young Children, with and without hearing loss, and how it and other issues impact on their ability process the spoken word in the classroom environment.

• Better listening

Better hearing results and improved learning


• Less repetition

Teachers can spend less time repeating themselves and more time getting on with the lesson


• An orderly classroom

Teachers are better able to give instructions and manage their students


• Greater vocal comfort

Teachers don't have to raise their voices to be heard


• Combined performance

Maximise understanding for kids with a personal communication system.


The use of SoundField Systems not only benefits Children with hearing loss but also everybody else in the Classroom.


Scientific research suggests that Children up to the age of about 16 do not possess the same auditory processing skills as adults, and so struggle to hear the spoken word in noisy environments.


Soundfields also benefit in many other ways including, protecting the Teachers voice, Aiding students with processing disorders and Students whose first language is not English.
