Kai is an 8-year-old who struggles to hear in noisy environments – such as his classroom and on the playground. We first met Kai and his mom in late 2016 before the summer holidays. After several visits to the Nuheara head office in Perth, Kai was fitted with the right size tip to fit his ears so he could start using IQbudsTM at home. When school resumed, Kai started using them with really positive results.
“After his first day at school with the earbuds, I asked Kai how it went and he said it was great, and it was also bad. He said it was great because he could finally hear the teacher, but bad because now that he could hear the teacher, he had to do what she said.” ~Mel (Kai’s mom)
Shortly after wearing them in the classroom, Kai showed marked improvement in his comprehension and spelling results and also a noticeable increase in his confidence and ability to concentrate.
