The tool in action
The videos below were created by pediatric hearing care professionals to show how they use the different environments in the My World tool to talk with children about their hearing loss.
You can use these videos to learn how to introduce the tool in the appointment and how to work with each of the three environments. You can also see how the hearing care professionals use the tool to help the children explore alternative communication strategies in specific situations.
If you would like to contribute a video to the website showing how you or a colleague work with the My World tool in the clinic, please contact us.
