Auditory Therapy

The goal of an auditory-therapy program is for a hard or hearing or deaf adult to make the best use of whatever hearing they have also known as their residual hearing. This individualized program may be recommended if:

  • Your audiologist has told you that your word recognition skills are poorer than would be expected based on your audiogram

  • You have essentially good listening skills in quiet settings, but experience inordinate difficulty comprehending speech from a distance or in the presence of background noise

  • You are experiencing difficulty adjusting to the use of a hearing aid or cochlear implant


Speech and Language Evaluation/ Therapy

Individual speech and/or language therapy may be needed by those individuals who were born with a hearing loss or who have experienced long-standing early-onset hearing loss. The focus of this program is to improve an individual’s oral language skills and may include:

  • Vocabulary development and usage

  • Voice production

  • Articulation improvement

Speechreading (or lipreading) Therapy

“Learning to speech read has improved my life! I truly could not exist in the environment that I live in without speechreading along with my aided hearing.” – CHC Client

People with all degrees of hearing loss can discover better communication by learning to speech read (also known as lipread). Working one-on-one as well as in a group setting, an expert from the CHC team can help you to decipher sounds and conversation cues by observing a person’s mouth, facial expressions, and gestures.

Contact us at to see if speechreading could help you connect to life. Certain private and government insurance plans provide coverage for speechreading therapy.
