Special Olympics Wisconsin is excited to announce we are collaborating with HEAR WI to bring additional Audiology services to athletes at the upcoming State Bowling Tournament on December 3, 2022 at Weston Lanes!
Stop by the Healthy Hearing screening in Mountain Bay Ballroom #3 between 11am – 3:30pm on Saturday December 3rd. Athletes with a need identified at the Healthy Hearing screening will be referred to the Mobile Audiology Clinic (MAC) for further testing, earwax removal and/or hearing aid check & cleaning. There will also be a HEAR WI table in the hallway with information on assistive devices such as iPhones and iPads along with signaling devices and accessories. All covered by the TEPP voucher program. HEAR WI will explain more about this invaluable program and assist with completing an application for it.
Athletes do not have to be competing in the bowling tournament to attend the Healthy Hearing or MedFest events that will be offered at Weston Lanes from 11am-4pm. Healthy Hearing screenings take approximately 10 minutes if there is no wait. HEAR WI staff welcome coaches and caregivers to take advantage of their services if there is not an athlete waiting to be seen. To receive hearing services, check-in at the Healthy Hearing room located in the Mountain Bay Ballroom room #3 in Weston Lanes, please do not go directly to MAC.
Remember to bring your hearing aid with you to the event! Hearing aid checks and cleaning services will be offered by MAC.
