There are two general categories of therapies, and most clinicians utilize both:

  • Impairment-based therapies are aimed at improving language functions and consist of procedures in which the clinician directly stimulates specific listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.

The hearing aids chosen will depend on your specific form of hearing loss and other needs and preferences. We offer you financing options to meet all budgets. You should also check to see if you qualify for free hearing aids from your employer (like Central government schemes).

At their most basic, hearing aids are microphones that convert sound into electrical signals. An amplifier increases the strength of the signal, then a receiver converts it back to sound and channels it into the ear canal through a small tube or earmold. A battery is necessary to power the hearing aid and to enable amplification.

While each person’s experience will vary, hearing aids may allow a person to hear certain sounds they have not heard before (or have not heard for many years). Relearning takes place in the central auditory nervous system and the brain needs some time to sort out this new information entering the ears. At Hear ‘N’ say clinic you can opt for a trial period policy that allows you to get time to adjust to your hearing aids and evaluate their benefit.
