Good afternoon, you state that your loss is mild-to-moderate. Do you know if it is going to stay that way or deteriorate in the future. There is a reason why I’m asking. Because after loss is progressive then you may want to make sure that your request for accommodations is backed up by a licensed audiologist. But I would follow your schools policies and procedures on this matter. Equipment that I’ve used in class is something called an FM system, this is a device that is a short range transmitter the teacher a.k.a. instructor wears the main unit and you wear a receiver and the receivers can either be added on to some hearing aids, or the receiver can take the form of a device that you plug headphones, or a neck loop into said receiver. I should also tell you that I passed your message on to other members of the National deaf blind division born. So that others may give you suggestions as well. I hope your afternoon goes well.
