A lot has been happening around here for Ben. I think it will take a few posts to get everything updated.
Ben has worn hearing aids since he was 5 months old. He often manages to pull them off (especially the one on the left). For the last year or so we have used Critter Clips to attach them to his clothing to prevent them from getting lost. However, the little elastic band on the Critter Clips became stretched, and wouldn’t reliably stay on the hearing aids anymore.
The last time we went to have new earmolds made for Ben, the audiologist mentioned Ear Gear to us. Apparently they have been recommending these to more of their patients since they help to protect the hearing aids from humidity and sweat. We decided to give them a try.
So far so good. Ben seems to like them better, maybe because they’re a little softer against his skin. He still pulls them off on occasion, but they stay safely attached to his clothing. And I like the bright blue color we chose.
If only the Ear Gear people made something to convince him to keep his glasses on more!
