Description:
As was explained earlier in this memorandum, bearing aids for the eligible classes are available only to a limited extent at present and are only given to certain priority groups. This is because of the need to deploy the limited resources and facilities to the ·best advantage. The aids are costly and it is important to ensure that persons supplied with aids are properly fitted and instructed in their use. The establishment of the hearing aid service by the National Organisation for Rehabilitation should permit of a considerable expansion, at reasonable cost, in the supply of aids to eligible persons. The assessment of deafness, particularly in school children and children of pre-school age attending child welfare clinics, will be greatly improved by examination by the public health nurses who have attended the courses in audiometry. It is also proposed that arrangements will be made for the training of persons supplied with aids under the scheme in their use. 107. Regarding the reference by the Catholic Women's Federation of Secondary School Unions to the provision of bearing aids for all ctizens, while the Minister is anxious to extend the supply of hearing aids to the middle Income Group as soon as possible, it seems inopportune to consider such a step until the service for the existing eligible classes has been brought up to standard by the arrangements now being made by the National Organisation for Rehabilitation
