Aural Rehabilitation

Aural Rehabilitation

The average person waits seven years after first noticing changes in their hearing to do something about it. Untreated hearing loss changes how we pick up and process sounds during this time. You'll eventually grow accustomed to missing some sounds.

As a result of this cognitive realignment, when we first get hearing aids fitted, the sounds we've been missing might appear overbearing. That's where aural rehabilitation comes in; because hearing treatment is much more than being fitted with hearing aids.

If you have hearing loss, you can benefit significantly from our aural rehabilitation programs as we help you strengthen your listening and auditory processing skills. You'll acclimatize to your hearing loss faster, make the most effective use of your hearing devices, explore the benefits of assistive devices, and reach your listening and communication goals more quickly.

We provide the following types of aural rehabilitation:

Advice on adjusting to hearing aids: Using a hearing aid may need your brain to relearn specific listening skills, particularly speech recognition. This can make getting used to hearing aids difficult at first. Still, they will rapidly become second nature with a bit of perseverance and patience.

Developing listening tactics: To increase your communication capabilities, we look at various strategies for listening with or without amplification.

Speechreading: We use visual signals from the speaker's mouth, facial expressions, and hand motions to help improve your understanding of and communication with other conversation partners.

Auditory training: We explore with you the ability to recognize speech sounds, patterns, words, phrases, or sentences.

Hearing Wellness Journey: This computerized listening therapy program, also known as aural rehab, includes tips, tricks, strategies, and practice lessons that can be completed anytime and at your own pace.
