What can be done?

Active listening can be taught! We are committed to helping our patients and their companions learn how to effectively communicate with one another, with or without amplification helps. Not only do we provide training on repairing/restoring conversations and environmental counseling, we also have programs that can be completed at home that train the brain to better evaluate sounds and background noise elimination.

The process of active listening is also aided through amplification and increased sound clarity, but it is often not enough to improve the sound alone. Without behavior modification and realistic expectations, success is futile. Our providers want to educate our patients to succeed and not fall short of their goals; a personal, understanding relationship with your provider who understands all of your listening needs will give you and your loved ones the best chance to restore the lines of communication for years to come!
