University Assists Hearing Aid Project

Nearly 150 low-income senior citizens have received refurbished hearing aids through the New Jersey Hearing Aid Project since 2014.

A collaboration between Montclair State, the New Jersey Division of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and the Hearing Charities of America, the hearing aid project is part of the University’s Audiology Clinic and its hearing aid bank is located within the Clinic.

In addition, the clinic is part of the Center for Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, which offers various services including diagnostic hearing evaluations, auditory processing disorders testing and comprehensive balance testing. The Center and its clinics are open to the University community as well as the general public.
