We often hear patients say they can hear but simply cannot understand.
Hearing is just one component of communication. How others speak to you, visual cues, the noise level and acoustics in your environment, and how you ask for clarification all affect communication too. At La Cañada Hearing Aids & Audiology, Dr. Ivory is committed to helping you develop comprehensive Communication Plans to address all the components of communication, not just hearing.
Communication is a two-way street. Hearing better involves more than just your ears and at La Cañada Hearing Aids & Audiology Dr. Ivory will help develop your unique comprehensive Communication Plan. “Aural Rehabilitation” is a topic of expertise for Dr. Ivory, as it is one of the courses he teaches concurrently at both California State University, Los Angeles (COMD 4200) and at California State University, Northridge (CD 446).
