Aural rehabilitation is often described as an add-on to our audiology services. We frequently find ourselves attempting to persuade patients to participate in this service, but then they decide not to. The premise of this presentation is that what we call “aural rehabilitation" should not be an “add-on”, but rather an integral part of ongoing audiology services that is provided on behalf patients with impaired hearing. It should actually be “what we do!” every time we see our patients.
