What is LACE?

Listening and Communication Enhancement | LACE

Listening and Communication Enhancement: LACE is an interactive computerised training program designed for home use. Just as physical therapy can help rebuild muscles and adjust movements to compensate for physical weakness or injury, LACE can assist in developing listening and communication strategies that can help compensate for those situations when hearing is inadequate.

What is the Purpose of LACE?

We may “hear” in our ears, but we “listen” 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 are one of the components essential for effective communication. Other components include rapid thought processing, auditory memory, use of language skills, and interactive communication strategies. In addition, gaining confidence in your hearing skills is vital. These skills can be damaged both by hearing loss and by the natural aging process. LACE is designed to enhance your ability to communicate by maximising your listening skills and communication strategies.

Training Tasks

LACE provides a variety of interactive and adaptive tasks that will help train you to listen and communicate more effectively. LACE training is adaptive, so it is never too difficult or too easy. As you improve, the training intensifies. After a few sessions, you will find yourself conquering difficult listening situations you never imagined possible. Your Help in Hearing audiologist will follow your progress closely and will discuss results in details during the follow up sessions.
