What is clEAR?

clEAR provides a new clinical tool to audiologists that allows them to provide customized hearing healthcare to their patients who have hearing loss. The centerpiece of clEAR is a set of web-based computer games that provide auditory brain training. The “secret sauce” is that training is customized to the particular patient, with individualized lesson plans and the option of training with voices that are familiar to the patient, such as an adult child or spouse.
