ALD logoAssistive Listening Devices

The DPRC provides assistive listening devices (ALDs) which may be useful for those with sufficient residual hearing to make use of auditory amplification. Each unit consists of two parts, a transmitter with a microphone--which the instructor wears--and a receiver, which is used with a headset, neckloop or other attachment which the student wears. The units run on rechargeable batteries. In most cases, the unit is loaned to registered students on a semester basis. For more information, please read about assistive listening devices.

 

Useful tips are available on how to use ALDs effectively for academic and non-academic purposes.
