Do you or a loved one experience hearing loss? Do you complain that you hear but can’t “understand” what is being said? Do you feel that everyone mumbles? Aural rehab can help.
What is Aural Rehab?
Hearing loss can have a significant impact on your quality of life. That’s why it’s important to learn more about each person’s specific capabilities, needs and best treatment options possible. An audiologist can better understand your own individual requirements through a solid aural rehab program.
Aural Rehab, also known as auditory rehabilitation, is a series of treatments and options to help identify and reduce causes or complications related to hearing loss. Steps involved might include personal counseling, coaching and other instructions with a trained audiologist or hearing expert. Overall, treatment is designed to help improve communication skills.
What can you expect?
In most cases, aural rehab programs can be set up through one-on-one sessions or in a small group setting, based on the person’s preferences. Topics covered often include sensory management, instructions on how to better use hearing aids and training to help improve speech over time.
