LACE Auditory TrainingConceived by leading audiologists at the University of California at San Francisco and implemented by silicon valley software engineers, LACE Auditory Training retrains the brain to comprehend speech up to 40% better in difficult listening situations.

LACE delivers 4 types of exercises to help improve listening skills:

  • Speech-in-Noise – helps you learn how to pick out a voice in a noisy environment
  • Rapid Speech – helps you develop skills to process rapid speech.
  • Competing Speaker – helps you learn how to focus on one voice at a time.
  • Word Memory – helps you remember the words the person talking has said and We may hear with our ears, but we listen with our brains. Train your brain and predict what may come next.

Just as physical therapy can help rebuild muscles and adjust movements to compensate for physical weakness or injury, LACE can help you develop skills and learn strategies for dealing with situations when hearing is inadequate.

While hearing aids and devices can help to detect sounds, they don’t affect other important factors in the brain’s ability to understand — listening, communication, and comprehension. Enhanced listening skills lead to better comprehension and communication and vice versa.

Speech-in-Noise Training Works!

Read the story from the American Academy of Audiology where they report “…LACE training generalizes to standardized clinically utilized measures of speech-in-noise perception—a critical factor if (auditory) training is to have an impact on real-world listening.”
