Auditory training employs formal listening activities to optimize the ability to hear AND understand speech. People with hearing loss, even with hearing aids, still need to deal with deficits in hearing speech that are not present in normal hearing individuals.
The LACE® Auditory Training program can be purchased at reduced pricing or is provided FREE to all of our hearing aid patients. Many patients will complete their first session in our office but can continue the program at home. The program works to retrain the brain to comprehend speech up to 40% better in difficult listening situations such as: Noisy restaurants; Rapid speakers; Competing speakers. Just as physical therapy can help rebuild muscles and adjust movements to compensate for physical weakness or injury, LACE can help you develop skills and learn strategies for dealing with situations when hearing is inadequate.
