For many individuals, successfully listening can be a challenge, especially when hearing in noise and listening to certain accents. However, research has shown that when we have hearing loss, these listening skills can be improved through practice. For the benefit of those with hearing loss, the Alberta Rehab Portal offers the ‘Sound Success’ program to help our patients improve their hearing skills.

The ‘Sound Success’ program is an excellent resource for patients looking to improve their listening in noise skills and their abilities to listen to different accents. The program is intended to help both patients who have cochlear implants or hearing aids, as well for patients who do not, yet still have difficulty listening to accents or hearing through background noise.

For those that are interested in taking advantage of this beneficial resource, we have provided some guidance tips to support our clients get started using the program.
