The Arkansas State University Speech and Hearing Center is proud to announce the launch of an Assistive Listening Device Trial Center.
Assistive listening devices (ALDs) or assistive listening systems (ALSs) are instruments that are designed to improve a person's ability to hear in specific listening situations. ALDs differ from conventional personal hearing aids in their application. Some ALDs amplify a sound signal, but the primary purpose of an ALD is to make the targeted sound easier to hear by isolating the sound source from surrounding noise. ALDs fall into several categories with those being alert/warning, telephone/telecommunications, radio/television, and personal communications (individual and group). Often, ALDs are employed to meet certain provisions of the Americans with Disability Act.
The ALD Trial Center was made possible through support by the College of Nursing and Health Professions Office of the Dean and by support from the Telecommunication Access Program of the Arkansas Department of Career Education, Arkansas Rehabilitation Services Division.
Several devices from each category are on display and are available for trial. Although the devices are not for sale from the ASU Speech and Hearing Center, a member of clinical staff can assist in the procurement of an ALD if recommended. For eligible individuals, some devices can be obtained free of charge from the Telecommunication Access Program of the Arkansas Department of Career Education, Arkansas Rehabilitation Services Division.
