The process of identifying and diagnosing a hearing loss, delivering various sorts of therapy to hard-of-hearing clients, and trying to install various amplification equipment to aid the client's hearing abilities is known as aural rehabilitation. Aural rehab refers to a set of treatments in which each therapy and amplification equipment is designed to help people overcome the handicap (disability) that comes with a hearing impairment or deafness. Aural rehabilitation refers to treatments and processes for supporting sufficient receptive and expressive communication in individuals with hearing impairments and is widely employed as an integral component in the overall management of individuals with hearing loss. Aural rehabilitation is frequently a collaborative effort involving doctors, audiologists, and speech-language pathologists.
The screening and treatment of communication issues and speech disorders is known as speech therapy. Speech-language pathologists (SLPs), often known as speech therapists, execute the procedure. To improve communication, speech therapy approaches are performed. Depending on the type of speech or language issue, these may include articulation therapy, language intervention exercises, and others. Speech therapy may be required for childhood speech abnormalities or adult speech difficulties caused by an injury or disease, such as a stroke or brain injury. Speech and language therapy has traditionally been guided by a complete linguistic examination of a child's pattern of receptive and expressive errors using both standardised testing instruments and language sampling approaches.
