While hearing aids make up a portion of the treatment for hearing loss, they are not the only component. While hearing aids can help you reclaim much of the speech and other sounds you have been missing, even the most advanced device will not restore your hearing to normal. Hearing aids will do their part, but much of the success you receive from them must come from you and the people speaking around you. This is why aural rehabilitation is essential to meeting your hearing goals.
Aural rehabilitation provides patients with strategies to improve their hearing loss induced deficits of function, activity, participation and quality of life. To do this, your audiologist will work with you to develop goals based on your hearing needs. They will then develop an individualized treatment plan designed to help you overcome the challenges related to your hearing loss.
