Hearing loss can have a significant impact on 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 well thought out aural rehab program.
What is Aural Rehab?
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 in the aural rehab process might include the following with a trained audiologist, hearing or speech expert:
- Personal counseling, coaching and training
- Special exercises to explore individual needs
- Relaxation techniques
- Communication strategies to help improve hearing and speech
- Use of hearing aids or assistive listening devices
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 aid technology and training to help improve speech over time.
