Upon evaluation of a hearing problem, aural rehabilitation provides specific interventions
to conserve and utilize hearing. Further, assistance with use of hearing aids and
other technological devices may be required. Children with hearing impairment encounter
special challenges in learning to communicate in oral and written forms and benefit
greatly from aural rehabilitation and speech-language therapy. Aural rehabilitation
services are also available and helpful for adults with hearing impairments.
For children with hearing impairment, we offer the Auditory and Language Enriched Program. Information on this beneficial program can be found on the ALEP website.
