The Henry
Beaufort
School

Equipment

We ensure optimal use of hearing aids, cochlear processors and radio aids, and empower our student’s independence by encouraging them to take responsibility for their daily monitoring.

In the classroom all our students use the latest digital radio aid systems. The teacher wears a transmitter enabling students to have an improved listening experience in the mainstream classrooms, as this ensures the teacher’s voice has priority over any background noise.

The transmitter can also be worn by the Communication and Learning Support Assistants when working individually with the students. Students are encouraged to use different modes depending on the environment, such as Table mode for when they are working in small groups. This will also enable students to consider how technology may help them in their further studies and the world of work.
