“Listening – Where Hearing Meets Brain”
Hearing is a Sense, Listening is a Skill!
Listening can be thought of as applying meaning to sound. When we have a hearing
loss, we have fewer cognitive resources available to accomplish our listening goal.
The core reason we endeavor to help people hear is to help people listen successfully, through the appropriate use of advanced hearing access technologies, such as hearing aids. These strategies center on the ability to make cognitive sense of sound, to listen better and to apply appropriate meaning to the cornucopia of sounds around them. The goal is not simply making sounds louder; the goal is improved, successful listening. We encourage you to come with your spouse or someone else you feel would benefit from the event.
We invite you to join us – Tuesday, June 5 – 10:30 a.m. or 5:30 p.m.
