Somerset, NJ — Oticon’s audiologists conducted hearing screenings with more than 300 preschoolers participating in Somerset County’s Head Start program.

The program is an ongoing part of the hearing device manufacturer’s community service work in Somerset County, where Oticon is headquartered in the United States. 

The company’s audiologists participated in hearing screenings at three area Head Start centers, which included Belmont, Hamilton, and North Plainfield.

“Even a slight hearing loss can affect a child’s school skills,” says Oticon audiologist and inside sales manager, Lydia Reilly. “Our goal is to ensure that children have the hearing health care support they need to be ready to succeed in a learning environment.”
