Abstract: The purpose of this document was to examine the importance of counseling as part of the aural rehabilitation provided to hearing impaired individuals and their families. With counseling techniques set in place, the goal of counseling-based aural rehabilitation is to improve the acceptance of hearing loss and satisfaction of hearing aids within the hearing impaired population. Pediatric children, school-aged children, adolescents, adults, and older adults can all be affected by hearing loss. Regardless of when a hearing loss is detected, it can affect the emotional well-being of an individual and his or her family. Because effective counseling can enhance treatment outcomes, including hearing aid use and acceptance, it is an important skill to be learned by audiologists.
