At this time we would like to announce that; following consultation with the Ministry of Education, Roger Focus and Roger X receivers will be added to the list of equipment available through the Auditory Training Equipment Loan Bank.
As you know Roger receivers are digital and use a different way of connecting to the transmitter. Nevertheless, by using an Inspiro transmitter with Roger software, these receivers can be used side-by-side with MLxi, or other analogue MicroLink FM receivers. Therefore, exchange of allocated analogue FM equipment for the new digital units is not necessary, even in settings where multiple units are being used.
To provide an equitable and sustainable way of introducing this new platform, the Program will make Roger Focus and Roger X receivers available for new fittings. We will also use them to replace allocated receivers when they reach end of life, if a replacement of the current model is unavailable. New fittings typically occur in kindergarten and early primary; however, the Program is not limiting allocation of these digital receivers by grade. A new fitting will be defined as a request for any student who has not been provided with receivers from the Program within the last 12 months, regardless of grade.
The digital platform follows connection and other protocols which differ from those we are used to with the FM systems. We encourage teachers and other school staff to become familiar with this line of equipment through the user guides, videos, and print material available from Phonak and Auditory Outreach. We are also exploring additional ways to support equipment users.
The new receivers will be available for the 2015 - 2016 school year. We will make efforts to fill requests so verification can be completed for students with appointments at clinics over the summer. For additional information please contact* email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
