Abstract

Abstract METHODS devised to improve the function of impaired organs of hearing without effecting a physical change have been used at various times in the past one hundred years, principally in young subjects whose hearing was severely impaired or who were born deaf.1 These methods have been both educational and acoustic in nature, but only in recent years, since the great increase in the employment of hearing aids began, have they become available to the many thousands with less profound, acquired impairment of hearing—the hard of hearing; for it was found that when a hearing aid was worn, improvement in hearing, over and above that derived from the amplification of the instrument, could be derived from such treatment.2 As a result, hearing reeducation (acoustic training) of the hard of hearing has become a common procedure. But practically it is given only after a hearing aid has been fitted and References 1. Itard, J. E. M.
