LACE : It’s not just for your wedding veil!

Auditory training can be defined as formal listening activities whose goal is to optimize the activity of speech perception (Dr. Arthur Boothroyd). It is based on an assumption that listeners often need help in dealing with the speech perception deficits that remain after auditory function has been optimized through an appropriate hearing aid selection process.

Auditory training can be an integral part of the successful use of hearing aids and the LACE program may suit all of your aural rehabilitation needs. LACE stands for Listening And Communication Enhancement and the program was developed to engage the adult hearing-impaired person with listening issues. Many hearing aid users need additional support to enhance their communication as much as possible and auditory training may be the answer.

LACE training is interactive and adaptive, always presenting tasks that are challenging and the training gives immediate feedback to maximize perceptual learning. It’s a fun way to train your brain! LACE can be downloaded onto any computer where you, the user participates in 20 sessions lasting 30 minutes each, or 10 sessions lasting 30 minutes each, when using the DVD. The program includes tasks that target speech in degraded situations, cognitive tasks, and interactive communication strategies. After completing the program, LACE will have provided new listening strategies, more confidence in difficult listening situations, and will have addressed cognitive changes characteristic of the aging process.
