Fitting one or two hearing aids certainly is not as complicated as brain surgery. However, there are more brains involved than one may think. When an individual hears, he or she is only hearing what the brain perceives, and the brain can only perceive if the earcan sense.So to put it in more simple terms, the ear collects the sound andsends it along the auditory pathway, but the brain is the organthat actually interprets what we hear. So if an individual has ahearing loss localized in his/her ear(s), then the ears are notproviding for the brain. Ultimately the brain will not interpret or“make sense” of what is heard.With that being said, when a person is diagnosed with a hearingloss and decides to try hearing aids, it is crucial that he/sheunderstands that the brain needs some time to acclimate to thesounds that the hearing aids provide. If the hearing loss islongstanding, it may take months for the individual to receive fullbenefit.Just think… the more often a person actually wears his hearingaids, the sooner he/she will acclimate to the new sound. And, thesooner he acclimates, the more benefit he will receive. Whetheryou are 1-year-old or 100-years-old, each person has the innateability to acclimate to new stimuli. So if you are in the market fora hearing aid or two, remember to be a “patient” patient, andgive your brain some time to adjust to its new ability to hear.
