Aural Rehabilitation Therapy

The purpose of Aural Rehabilitation Therapy is to help you make

the best use of whatever hearing you have (i.e., residual hearing)

so that you can be confident and thrive in everyday listening

situations. 

You could be a candidate for Auditory-Aural Rehabilitation
Therapy if
you struggle to comprehend speech in noise, if you're

transitioning to the use of hearing aids or a cochlear implant, or 

if your word recognition skills are poorer than your audiogram

would suggest.

Our program begins with a Functional Listening Evaluation, and then working collaboratively, we establish therapy goals. 8-10 therapy sessions would follow. Specific objectives might include:

  • Structured listening activities to improve speech perception in both noise and quiet environments

  • Speechreading (i.e., lipreading) training supplement missed auditory information

  • Instruction on communication strategies for use in challenging listening environments

Both evaluation and treatments can be provided in-person or via telehealth.
