People who are hearing challenged often find themselves slowly disconnecting from their loved ones, and the life they cherish. Our mission acknowledges that Phonak empowers people to reconnect to the world with a renewed sense of confidence, allowing them to be a participant – deepening their relationship with everybody and everything that matters most.

Together with our partners, hearing care professionals around the world, we are fully committed to fighting the stigma attached to hearing loss, to tearing down barriers for the hearing-impaired and to finding new and innovative ways to help everyone reconnect to the beauty of sound.

Do Hearing Aids Prevent Cognitive Decline?
 CEU courses
Presented by Shannon Basham, AuD
Live WebinarMon, Jun 10, 2019 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #331811 Hour
Research has shown that there are known associations between hearing loss and cognitive abilities. Cognitive decline has been seen to be accelerated in people with hearing loss. Several hypotheses exist regarding the underlying mechanisms driving the described associations. Science is currently trying to find the most likely explanation. One of the more researched hypotheses is that impoverished auditory input leads to decreased cognition - So can hearing aids delay the issue? The session will give an overview of the current state of knowledge.

Pediatric Family Centered Care. The Importance of Family Involvement for Pediatric Patients
 CEU courses
Presented by Nicole Klutz, AuD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #328601 Hour
From the moment we inform families of their child’s hearing loss, there is much to discuss and understand. However, for many reasons, families may not bring up their questions or concerns. Using a tool like the CHL QPL involves far more than providing surface answers to family questions and concerns. Easy-to-apply listening and counseling skills are needed to understand what a particular question means to a particular family, and whether it is indirectly related to other, more complicated concerns.

Phonak Audeo Marvel. Fully Connected to a Teen's Life
 CEU courses
Presented by Angela Lawfield
Recorded Webinar
Course: #328171 Hour
Teens today face pressures with school, sports, relationships and media. Participating and feeling accepted takes confidence which is not always easy for teens with hearing loss. When teens hear well, they can connect socially resulting in them feeling more comfortable in their own skin and confident enough to break out and be different. Hearing technology that allows them to fully participate and communicate in every situation will give them the sense of well-being so that they can make sure to make the most of those exciting and challenging teenage years. Phonak Marvel does just that! In this course, we will review Phonak Audeo Marvel as a solution for teens with hearing loss.
