LACE – Listening And Communication Enhancement

Conceived by leading audiologists at the University of California at San Francisco and implemented by silicon valley software veterans, LACE® Auditory Training programs retrain the brain to comprehend speech up to 40% better in difficult listening situations such as:

  • Noisy restaurants
  • Rapid speakers
  • Competing speakers

Just as physical therapy can help rebuild muscles and adjust movements to compensate for physical weakness or injury, LACE can help you develop skills and learn strategies for dealing with situations when hearing is inadequate.

LACE Online

I have had many opportunities to practice what I’ve learned, so the training was very realistic


It taught me I could concentrate and follow one voice, and get better at it


I pay closer attention to the person speaking in social situations
