Equipment

Technology designed to help give deaf people greater access to sound every day.  Some items are designed for use with hearing aids or cochlear implants and are especially useful in schools, such as a Radio Aid.  This gives the student direct access to the teachers voice cutting out the background noise. 

Other items are designed to give greater independence around the home, such as a pager or vibrating alarm clock.  And some equipment is designed to give access to entertainment - such as a music link or loop system.  NDCS has an equipment loan service called "Technology Test Drive" and families can loan out pieces of equipment for their deaf child to try out free of charge.
