Welcome to Sound Express™, an interactive program that lets you take control of your listening rehabilitation independently at home. You gain practice in discriminating and identifying sounds and speech components through a series of self-paced modules that cover different aspects of the listening process. Each training group presents a range of trials in which you need to match a given sound to one of several images, words or sentences. The level of difficulty is adjusted to match your developing listening skills. The program provides feedback, highlighting areas you can continue to practice. This feedback can be shared with your clinician or therapist, who can provide further advice on your rehabilitation. Focused on practice and improvement of your listening skills, Sound Express™ compliments your clinic rehabilitation program.
