LACE – Listening and Communication
We don’t really hear with our ears; we hear with our brain. Hearing instruments 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 essential components of effective communication. 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.
LACE is an acronym for Listening And Communication Enhancement. Conceived by leading audiologists at the University of California at San Francisco, LACE is an interactive computerized training program that helps improve your ear-to-brain muscle memory.
LACE focuses on the five challenges of listening:
- Speech in background noise (like restaurants or parties)
- Rapid speech (when people are speaking quickly)
- Competing speaker (two people are speaking and the “noise” is other people near them speaking)
- Missing word (If you miss a word in a conversation, can you still understand the message?)
- Auditory working memory (If you miss a piece of the conversation, how long does it take you to accurately understand what was said?)
LACE has already helped thousands of people who live with some degree of hearing loss increase their listening skills by up to 45%. Just as physical therapy can help rebuild physical strength and compensate for weakness, LACE can assist in developing listening, communication, and interaction skills.
Whether you wear hearing instruments, are just acquiring devices, or simply wish to improve your listening skills, LACE training will help you get the most out of the sounds of life. Because it is a computerized, internet-based program, our Audiologist can track your results and discuss them with you.

Earobics is a researched-based computer program that assists in the development of phonemic awareness, auditory discrimination, attention, and decoding skills. Comprised of six fun, interactive games, the program gets progressively harder as the student makes progress. This adaptive training technology means each experience is customized based on student performance.
Earobics can be done in the office or at home, whichever is more convenient for your schedule. There are two levels to the program, so as the student progresses past level 1 there is a second level to help build on the foundation skills.
Ask us for a demonstration of Earobics so you can see how fun and effective this tool can be for building auditory skills!
