Aural Rehabilitation

Aural rehabilitation or “aural rehab”, is the process of identifying and diagnosing a hearing loss and then providing patients different types of therapies.

We use aural rehab in our practice as an important component in the overall care of our patients. We don’t just see our patients as a set of ears.We know that there is much more to you than your hearing loss. The goal of all aural rehab therapies is to assist anyone with a hearing loss to overcome or learn to compensate for any problems that it causes.

Trust your hearing care to a practice that views you as an individual who happens to have a hearing impairment, and not just as a set of ears.

Aural Rehabilitation Therapies
  • Hearing aid orientation: The process of providing education and therapies to persons (individual or group) and their families about the use and expectations of wearing hearing aids to improve communication.
  • Listening strategies: The process of teaching someone who has a hearing loss different strategies to improve their ability to communicate when listening with or without amplification.
  • Speechreading: The process of using, teaching, or understanding communication using visual cues observed from the speaker’s mouth, facial expressions, and hand movements.
  • Auditory Training: The process of teaching an individual with a hearing loss the ability to recognize speech sounds, patterns, words, phrases, or sentences via audition.

The LACE Program

LACE is an acronym for Listening And Communication Enhancement. Conceived by leading audiologists at the University of California at San Francisco, LACE is an interactive computerized aural rehabilitation program that has already helped thousands of people who live with some degree of hearing loss increase their listening skills by up to 45%.LACE - Listening And Communication EnhancementWe don’t really hear in our ears; we hear in our brain. Hearing aids can help a person detect softer sounds, but they don’t necessarily provide good listening skills.Even people with normal hearing can be poor listeners. Good listening skills is one of the essential components in effective communication. Other components include rapid thought processing, auditory memory, use of language skills, and interactive strategies.Additionally, confidence in accurate hearing is vital. These abilities can be damaged both by hearing loss and by the natural aging process. LACE is designed to enhance the ability to communicate by training the brain to best utilize these skills. Just as physical therapy can help rebuild muscles and adjust movements to compensate for physical weakness or injury, LACE will help you develop skills and strategies to deal with situations in which hearing is inadequate. Whether you wear hearing aids, are just acquiring aids, or simply wish to improve your listening skills, LACE training will help you get the most out of the sounds of life. LACE is available for Windows 7, XP, Vista and Apple OSX 10.4 or newer computer systems and on most home DVD players for use on your home Television.
