The hearing brain
Use it or lose it
“Listening is Where Hearing Meets the Brain” Beck, 2011
Long term hearing loss may impact on cognitive ability. The longer you deprive you brain of sound, the more time it may take to help you to redevelop the skill of listening.
As amazing as today’s treatment technologies are in producing natural sound quality, how you respond to and process the sound delivered to your brain depends on your abilities and for some, we need to help you retrain your brain to recover and improve communication skills associated with hearing loss.
We use a variety of interactive computerized tools in our rehabilitation programmes, aimed at helping you develop communications strategies, by strengthening memory skills and teaching you how to conquer listening challenges.
