What is auditory training?
While you physically hear with your ears, your brain must process the sounds and make sense of them. Auditory training, sometimes referred to as “aural rehabilitation,” helps get your brain and your ears working together.
Who can benefit from it?
Patients who have difficulty communicating in noise with their hearing aids may benefit from auditory training. Auditory training sessions can strengthen a listener’s ability to assimilate environmental and speech cues and teach them to use adaptive strategies to function better in difficult listening conditions. LACE auditory training is designed to improve speech understanding in noise, reduce listening fatigue and make it easier to follow conversations, especially in loud environments.
How is it practiced?
LACE is a web-based program composed of several training modules. It focuses on several particularly challenging listening situations: overcoming background noise, rapid speech, competing speakers, missing words and auditory working memory. Since LACE is online, it can be completed on your own schedule, at your own pace.
