I am back to doing aural rehab once again.
I’m still doing closed set lists (picking out the correct word out of 4 word sets). Today, I got the highest score I have ever gotten on the AB program which was 84%.
I generally get around 80-90% on closed set words that have different syllables (the Cochlear computer program) but lately I have been focusing on the Advanced Bionics (AB) computer program because it’s more challenging (e.g. same number of syllables, similar initial sounds, etc). With the AB program I generally get around 65-75%. This is in a quiet setting with very clear speech.
I had mixed feelings about it.
At first, I was excited because until today the highest score I had was around 75%. Then it kind of bothered me that after 2 years I’m still on closed set list and I have yet to get a 90% using the AB program
I had to remind myself that I scored 40% 3 months after I got my CI. Going from 40% to 84% is pretty good even though it took 2 years.
It’s a slowwww process. It doesn’t help that my exposure to hearing people is limited since I work from home and I interact mostly with deaf people who sign.
Just one of those moments where I’m not sure if I should be excited or disappointed. Eh, I think I’m going to find a middle ground and be pleased that I’m continuing to make process even though it’s slow….and cross my fingers that this 84% wasn’t a fluke. 🙂
