As part of our commitment to your personalized hearing healthcare and improving your communication and quality of life, our clinic offers listening and communication enhancement training through LACE ONLINE.
Research has shown that the ear-to-brain connection can weaken due to hearing loss or the natural aging process. Auditory rehabilitation/training helps strengthen your ear-to-brain connection, improving listening, communication, and interaction skills.
Exercises are delivered in 11 training sessions during the program in four key areas:
– Speech-in-Noise: helps you learn how to pick out a voice in a noisy environment.
– Rapid Speech: helps you develop skills to process rapid speech.
– Competing Speaker: helps you learn how to focus on one voice at a time.
– Word Memory: helps you remember the words the person talking has said and predict what may come next.
You can access LACE training from any web browser with an internet connection – on Apple or Windows computers, as well as iOS and Android devices.
