Hope for hearing

Dr. Sandra Vandenhoff’s  personal and professional understanding of living with hearing loss are the inspiration behind HEARa. While enduring many struggles, she also experienced many successes. This led to the realization there are answers, and there is hope.

Sandra has severe to profound hearing loss in both ears. She understands what it is like to feel scared as hearing loss progresses. At one point Sandra could not hear the radio or have phone conversations even with hearing aids. She prepared for the worst by researching ways to cope.

Sandra’s research revealed there are many components to hearing better. She focuses specifically on auditory traininglipreading, and communication strategies because of the results she has achieved personally and with clients.

Hearing training changes lives

The impacts of improving listening and communication skills is life changing.

For the first time, in a very long time, I feel in control and I am participating in my own life. I can even go to a relatively noisy restaurant / gathering and actually be myself.

What I’m going through is not so unusual. I won’t be reluctant to go out and get into a conversation. I learned that I CAN hear if I listen and apply the strategies.

Training not only works on your listening ability ... I went from a shy and tentative wandering generality to a confident and ambitious person.
