Our method of aural rehabilitation, or restoration of hearing, is to slowly bring your hearing technology up in volume to match your greatest need. This means you don’t walk out the door with 100% of what you could use, as that would be overwhelming and possibly painful. Instead, in a step-by-step and evidenced-based process, we slowly bring the brain ‘up to speed’ with listening to sounds you haven’t heard in, potentially, years.
While we introduce new sound, we also teach you how to listen effectively, speech-read, and practice listening in background noise. This is possible not only at your fitting appointment, but with supplementary in-house or community classes, seminars, and lectures scheduled in advance. That way, your family and friends can attend and learn about what you are struggling with, giving everyone around you the opportunity to fully understand what you experience with your hearing difficulties.
