Benefits of early radio aid use

Highlights from this study’s findings include:
 
·         Everyday listening environments present a risk to learning spoken language: using a radio aid can reduce this risk
 
·         Using a radio aid facilitates important predictors of spoken language outcomes; improved hearing for speech and increased quantity of adult language and parent-child interaction
 
·         Radio aid use can have a positive impact on the well-being of both children and their parents 
 
·         Successful radio aid use requires timely and good quality information and support to maximise potential benefits for the child and their family
 
·         Radio aid equipment can be challenging, but benefits largely outweigh any difficulties
