There are hearing aids that fit inside the earcanal and is very discreet. Look in the yellow pages for an speechtherapist near you - she may be able to test his level of hearing loss and also which products would work best for him. He will be able to swim - (without the hearing aid of course) - but if he still has a hole in the eardrum may need to use a plug in the ear - discuss this with his ENT surgeon.
