Hearing Aid Styles

In-the-Ear (ITE)

Hearing aids worn in the ear are generally custom-fit based on an impression of the ear. There are a variety of ITE styles available:


Behind-the-Ear (BTE)

Behind-the-Ear instruments sit behind or on top of the outer ear with a tube that connects to an ear tip or mold inside of the ear. BTE’s offer the widest range of features, colors, battery types, and degrees of power. Today, they’re offered in small, discreet designs that are often unnoticeable when worn. For those who prefer to “show them off”, they also come in multiple colors and designs.



“My son Caleb attended Autumn Oaks for about two years because he had a speech delay. During his time there his speech and pronunciation improved greatly. Mrs. Eshita (our speech pathologist) is so encouraging, patient and supportive. The entire staff is friendly and great to work with. We cannot thank Autumn Oaks enough for helping our son!!”

“The experience at Autumn Oak has been amazing. Taryn and Shelby are very good at communicating my child’s goals and keeping me updated about his progress. We have noticed a huge increase in my sons speech and his intelligibility. All of the office personnel are super friendly and welcoming to everyone. The office is always clean and they take the time to clean in between each appointment. We will continue coming for all of our speech therapy needs until every goal has been accomplished.”

“My son has been with Autumn Oak for about 3yrs and he’s made huge strides since. The practice is great, from the person who answers the phone to the therapist he sees. The hours work beautifully for our schedule too. He attends for speech, mainly for stuttering, and he’s learn such great techniques to help him cope.
His therapist, Taryn, is super patient with him and finds ways or topics to draw him in to make the appt successful. He’s also seen Velma, she’s awesome too. Highly recommend both.”

“My son absolutely loves coming here. Our experience at Autumn Oaks Speech has been great! His therapist, Ms. Shelby as well as Ms. Taryn works so good with him and we have seen great progress. The staff is kind and awesome!”
