The school has provided a very lousy fm system to V, it gave a lot of feedback and now it does not work anymore. Teacher and I have not been able to really draw anything from the experience since the quality of the device is less than perfect. The head was also a bad fit, the wire and receiver cliped on his pants annoyed V HUGELY. Now, we are "waiting" for the expert to tell us what the problem is. In the mean time, V has started Auditory Processing Disorders (APD) therapy and Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) told me it did not take her 10 minutes to realize that V has some major Auditory Processing Disorders (APD) issues. I decided that I was going to get him a good system and just pay out of pocket. I am simply not willing t wait anymore. We've known the issue for over a year and waiting is not acceptable anymore. We'll just pay and help our son. My understanding was that the isense micro from phonak was a good solution (no wires to mess with and endorsed by our dear Buddy no pressure LOL). But now, the audiologist who diagnosis V about 6 months ago tells me it is not a good choice for a 5 year old. It's complicated and heavy. She sugested the amigo FM system from oticon with paded headset (yuck, I doubt V will like that). http://www.oticon.com/products/wireless-accessories/amigo-fm/about-amigo.aspx here is the isense link: http://www.phonak.com/com/b2c/en/products/fm/receivers/isense.html The audiologist is looking to see if she can order both for in office trial. And then we'll see how V reacts and what he likes best. By ordering both at the same time (knowing that one will be returned instantly), I try to avoid too much back and forth as her office is not close. I know the audiologist think the isense is heavy but V has BIG ears... is it relevant? I don't know I do respect professional's opinion but I don't want to be influenced in the wrong direction. She also tells me the isense is very pricey, but there are some online store that seel it for about half her price! The isense would still have to be shipped to audiologist (phonak policy for proper fitting). So fina cially: about $1100 for the amigo and $1500 for the isense micro. Any advice and input welcome!
