LOAN BANK UPDATE - Digital Equipment Loans! ​Auditory Outreach is pleased to be able to announce full availability of digital (Roger) receivers in our loan bank.

We will continue to provide new requests with digital receivers and transmitters. We have also added the Cochlear Mini Mic 2+ and Oticon Edu Mic*.​

For equipment loans currently providing students with FM receivers (e.g. MLxi), if the need for an upgrade to digital receivers is determined by the audiologist, school/ district, and family, a request will include:

  1. A completed Equipment Exchange request form with authorizing signatures from audiologist and school/ district
  2. The most recent audiology report (within approx. one year)

    Please note, with the manufacturer's discontinuation of the Roger inspiro, the Roger Touchscreen will be available for new requests, and when the current transmitter is unavailable to replace an allocated transmitter, eg. technical service**. Please note, the Roger Touchscreen is not available as an upgrade request.

    For assistance with equipment please use the EasySheets, user guides, instructional videos, and contact our program audiologist Carrie Siu, or myself.

    We encourage audiologists, TDHHs/ HRTs, EAs, parents/ guardians, school teams, and everyone involved in supporting students to become familiar with equipment through the user guides, videos, and print material available from Auditory Outreach and the manufacturers.

    With thanks,
