LACE: Listening and Communication Enhancement
Conceived by leading audiologists at the University of California at San Francisco and implemented by silicon valley software veterans, LACE® listening software retrains the brain to comprehend speech up to 40% better in difficult listening situations such as:
- Noisy Restaurants
- Rapid speakers
- Competing speakers
Just as physical therapy can help rebuild muscles and adjust movements to compensate for physical weakness or injury, LACE will help you develop skills and strategies to deal with situations when hearing is inadequate.Whether you wear hearing aids, are just acquiring aids, or simply wish to improve your listening skills, LACE training will help you get the most out of the sounds of life. Even people with normal hearing can be poor listeners. Good listening skills is one of the essential components in effective communication.
Other components include rapid thought processing, auditory memory, use of language skills, and interactive strategies. Additionally, the confidence that what you thought you heard was what was actually spoken is vital. These abilities can be damaged both by hearing loss and by the natural aging process. LACE is designed to enhance the ability to communicate by training the brain to best utilize these skills.
