"A good friend of mine suggested Dr. Westall for my hearing loss problems so I made the first appointment for the hearing evaluation. Dr. Westall was thorough and communicated an approach that would help solve my hearing loss problems. We choose the ReSound Alera 9 hearing aids as my best choice. I was personally surprised that there was more to the setting up of the hearing aids with the customizing to my hearing. This is not a "cookie cutter" operation and each person is evaluated and gets custom programming. It took a few visits with Dr. Westall to get these Alera 9's into high performance mode! What a difference from the days without them!! No going back now. If you are considering whether to get hearing aids or just want to bench mark your loss with an evaluation, this is the office you want to visit. I can tell you that you will not be disappointed! From the courtesy and professionalism at the front desk from Penny to the expert audiologist Dr. Westall, you will be very happy with your whole hearing experience!" - William Norton
LACE is an acronym for Listening And Communication Enhancement. Conceived by leading audiologists at the University of California at San Francisco, LACE is an interactive computerized aural rehabilitation program that has already helped thousands of people who live with some degree of hearing loss increase their listening skills by up to 45%.
We don’t really hear in our ears; we hear in our brain. Hearing aids can help a person detect softer sounds, but they don’t necessarily provide good listening skills.
Even people with normal hearing can be poor listeners. Good listening skills is one of the essential components in effective communication.
Other components include rapid thought processing, auditory memory, use of language skills, and interactive strategies. Additionally, the confidence that what you thought you heard was what was actually spoken is vital.
These abilities can be damaged both by hearing loss and by the natural aging process. LACE is designed to enhance the ability to communicate by training the brain to best utilize these skills.
Just as physical therapy can help rebuild muscles and adjust movements to compensate for physical weakness or injury, LACE will help you develop skills and strategies to deal with situations when hearing is inadequate. Whether you wear hearing aids, are just acquiring aids, or simply wish to improve your listening skills, LACE training will help you get the most out of the sounds of life.
