Aural rehabilitation or “Aural rehab,” is the process of diagnosing and describing a hearing loss, followed by the implementation of different individualized therapies. We use aural rehab in our practice as an important component in the overall care of our patients.
At Audiology and Speech Solutions, we see our patients as more than a set of ears, and the goal of aural rehab therapies is to assist individuals with hearing loss in compensating for the problems that it causes. We hope you entrust your hearing healthcare in our practice – one that views you as a completely unique individual.
Aural Rehabilitation in Rye, NY
We have a step-by-step process designed to help you understand your hearing, learn how your hearing instruments work, realize strategies for listening in different situations, and practice rehabbing your auditory processing system.
The Hearing Wellness Journey isn’t so much a training program as it is an implementation program.
This aural rehab program can even work with any current hearing aids you are using (as long as they are set at levels that your audiologist has deemed are optimal for you and your level of hearing loss).
Yes, you’ll learn strategies behind everything you do, but more importantly, you’ll have an easy step-by-step plan that allows your brain to adapt, challenge your current listening capabilities, and ensure you have the best outcome possible for your type and degree of hearing loss.
