A 40-year-old with hearing loss due to a history of Acoustic Neuroma

Auditory therapy helped me to not only physically adjust to my new way of hearing the world, but also emotionally. In each session I expressed to my therapist the difficulties I was having with this life-changing event. My therapist took those concerns and gave me personalized listening techniques and strategic coping mechanisms to use when I have difficulty hearing people.

I strongly recommend auditory therapy for patients who recently got any type of hearing aid device. It absolutely helped me with the transition of getting hearing aids. Auditory therapy taught me how to better listen with my hearing aids and how to develop my other senses to assist me in doing so.
