Auditory rehabilitation training for adults after wearing hearing aids


Since most hearing-impaired adults have certain speech listening experience, their requirements for hearing aids are not only to learn language, but also to improve auditory feelings, enhance language communication skills, and improve social communication confidence. The first thing is to give them the confidence that training with hearing aids will be successful. The effect is mainly determined by the individual's unremitting efforts to overcome the inferiority complex of not being able to explain embarrassment. Under the guidance of auditory speech therapists or professional books, following scientific training methods and the assistance of family members, significant progress can generally be made in a relatively short period of time.

Auditory rehabilitation training for adults after wearing hearing aids

Auditory rehabilitation training for adult hearing loss patients can be divided into 3 parts: classified training, comprehensive training and practical training.

Classification training:

Classification training is often designed in order from easy to difficult, mainly to develop the ability of hearing loss patients to distinguish between syllables and factors in syllables, rather than semantics. In the whole training process, classified training only occupies a short time, and the initial stage is generally 10~15 minutes per day. For people with hearing loss with more severe hearing impairment, they have lost a lot of ability to learn sound information, so in classification training, speech sounds are usually given only one syllable or word at a time, so hearing impaired people can focus on practicing the characteristics of speech sounds. Compared with adults, classification training is relatively long for children.

Comprehensive training

Comprehensive training is the delivery of speech sounds to people with hearing impairments in a normal way, such as through conversation or storytelling. The purpose of training is to develop and improve hearing, visual or auditory communication skills for people with hearing impairments, and training materials generally include meaningful sentences, paragraphs or vocabulary. In comprehensive training, we mainly focus on the training of the whole picture of speech such as semantics, syntax, context prompts, etc. In fact, in hearing rehabilitation, most of the time is spent on comprehensive training. Actual communication should be simulated primarily according to the needs of people with hearing loss, with an emphasis on enabling people with hearing impairments to understand information, even if they cannot accurately perceive every sound. During the training process, the hearing impaired should give feedback so that the speaker can understand what content is perceived by the hearing impaired person and what content is missing.

Practical training

Practical training is the information necessary to teach people with hearing impairments how to communicate and change the communication environment when communicating. The advantage of this training is that it can train hearing loss patients to use listening skills and conversation skills, which are very useful in actual communication.

The above is an important part of auditory rehabilitation training for adult hearing loss patients, I hope it will be helpful to you. AUSTAR: Chinese hearing aid manufacturer.
