The (re)habilitation of individuals with hearing loss is a complex process that must identify and address the unique needs of each person and their family. This course provides a foundation of the management for those born with hearing loss (habilitation) or those who have lost their hearing over time (rehabilitation). We will introduce the many approaches to the aural (re) habilitation process that can be adapted for these individual needs.
