Offering Aural Rehabilitation Services in Valparaiso, IN
Have you been struggling with hearing loss? Hearing impairment can make it difficult to understand conversations with loved ones, pay attention in work meetings, and watch television and movies, but there’s a solution: aural rehabilitation therapy. Professional Hearing Management—a trusted hearing center—is pleased to offer this service to patients in Valparaiso, Indiana, and the surrounding area.
What Is Aural Rehabilitation Therapy?
Also referred to as audiologic, auditory, or hearing rehabilitation, aural rehabilitation involves using various techniques to help individuals with hearing loss improve their communication abilities, thereby enhancing their quality of life. After performing a thorough evaluation and speaking with a patient about their lifestyle and treatment goals, an audiologist may recommend one or more of the following aural rehabilitation methods:
- Hearing aids – Depending on the degree of hearing loss you’re experiencing, you may be a candidate for hearing aids, and an audiologist can recommend the type that’s best suited to your needs.
- An assistive or alerting device – Some examples include television headsets, closed captions, vibrating alarm clocks, and flashing doorbells. These devices can be used with or without hearing aids.
- Auditory training – Depending on your specific condition, you might benefit from learning skills like speech discrimination or speechreading.
- Communication strategies – An audiologist can offer tips on how to communicate to someone that you’re having trouble hearing them (for example, by asking them to face you when speaking, slow their words down, or speak more clearly).
