What the research shows about auditory brain training

What the research shows about auditory brain training:
Improves speech discrimination (JSLHR, 2016; 2017)
Reduces perceptual effort (Semin Hear, 2015)
Diminishes everyday listening challenges  (JSLHR, 2016)
Increases confidence for engaging in conversations (JSLHR, 2017; JAAA, 2012)
Much attention has been paid to the Johns Hopkins study that showed untreated hearing loss can hasten age-related cognitive decline (J. Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci, 2011).  Consequently, many patients are receptive to the notion of “exercising” their listening skills and cognitive auditory abilities.  Auditory brain training can be a key component in a comprehensive hearing healthcare plan, especially given the public’s growing awareness of the link between hearing treatment and good cognitive health.

clEAR auditory brain training is now even more accessible to people with hearing loss!
