The journey from hearing impaired to hearing empowered can seem very challenging, almost overwhelming, if we believe that we are dealing with it alone. It helps to know others understand what we are going through. That’s why group participation also allows people to share coping strategies with one another, which is an excellent opportunity for aural rehab.
What is Aural Rehab?
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 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 trainings with a trained audiologist or hearing expert.
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.
“Aural rehabilitation” is a term that means learning how to hear again. Every hearing-impaired person must do this to one degree or another. We provide individual treatment to each client in our office. We also have a group program for folks who need a little extra encouragement.
Aural Rehabilitation Classes
Our aural rehabilitation class is one-of-a-kind. During this four week small-group discussion format you learn the basics (and more!) of hearing aid use and listening techniques that give you a better communication environment.
Class openings will be posted here or you may call the office for more information.

“For the first time in 10 years I am able to have a normal conversation with my grandmother without yelling so she can hear me. The constant wonderment and smile on her face almost brings me to tears. Thank you Angela. You have brought light to an old woman’s life, and hope back to her grandson.”
