Helping people hear is about knowing how to listen. The Ida Institute is a nonprofit founded in 2007 with a grant from the Oticon Foundation with the goal of bringing person-centered care to hearing healthcare.
The Ida Institute is an independent, non-profit organization working to integrate person-centered care in hearing rehabilitation. Together with hearing care professionals around the world, we develop free tools and resources to strengthen the counseling process.
