At HearSense SC, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of Auditory Processing Disorder (APD). Our Audiologist is trained in the latest techniques and therapies to help our patients overcome the challenges associated with APD. We offer two primary treatment methods: the Buffalo Model and ARIA therapy.

Buffalo Model Therapy

The Buffalo Model is a comprehensive therapy protocol designed to address the individual's diagnostic profile. This model identifies four basic categories: Decoding, Tolerance-Fading Memory (TFM), Integration, and Organization.

  1. Decoding focuses on understanding and interpreting speech at the phonemic level.
  2. Tolerance-Fading Memory (TFM) involves understanding speech in noise and improving auditory short-term memory and attention.
  3. Integration addresses severe reading and spelling problems, often associated with dyslexia, and difficulties relating to both visual and auditory information.
  4. Organization targets sequencing and organization skills, helping individuals follow directions in order.

Our Buffalo Model therapy program is offered both in-person at our Columbia, South Carolina, clinic and via telehealth. The therapy involves two rounds of sessions, with a break in between to allow the brain to generalize, generate, and change. Specific interventions are tailored to the individual's needs, based on the categories affected.

ARIA Therapy

ARIA (Auditory Rehabilitation for Interaural Asymmetry) therapy is a cutting-edge treatment designed to improve auditory processing abilities, particularly in individuals with interaural asymmetry. This therapy uses a unique approach of presenting different auditory stimuli to each ear, training the brain to process these stimuli more effectively.

ARIA therapy is particularly beneficial for individuals who have difficulty understanding speech in noisy environments, struggle with localizing sound, or have a significant difference in hearing between the two ears.

We are proud to be the only clinic offering ARIA therapy in South Carolina. This service is provided in-person at our clinic.
