Hearing, like vision, is a bilateral sense that captures information from two channels: left and right. It is important that both ears work in a coordinated and stable manner in order to obtain a good perception of sound. Otherwise, the auditory process can be altered and negatively interfere in the behavior, learning and speech. Having good hearing acuity is not enough.
Our center has a hearing professional that specializes in preventing, detecting and treating these hearing problems.
The auditory stimulation therapy is a personalized training for the ear to correct these alterations and improve the quality of hearing. It consists of 10 sessions of 45 min.
