After a winter break, the MontCo chapter met on February 5, 2018, as usual, at the Jeanes Library, with 14 in attendance.
The meeting was an informal round-table event, generally focused on assistive devices, a format that has proven popular in the past. Attendees brought their favorite, or even least favorite hardware for show-and-tell. The discussion covered the gamut, from Pocketalker devices to the Roger Pen and other streaming (paired) systems.
Glen Harris provided a brief review of “Wired for Sound” by Beverly Biderman, who received a cochlear implant in 1993, when they are relatively uncommon.
It was agreed that that MontCo would again sponsor a picnic at Fort Washington State Park in July, and hope was expressed that we can get increased participation from other chapter in the area.
At our March 5 meeting we will welcome Jorge Zavala, AuD, who will discuss current hearing aid technology, with a focus on connectivity issues. Further details on hlaamcc.org closer to that date.
