Our Mission

At the Ida Institute, we believe that every person and every hearing loss is unique.

Our mission is to work with hearing care professionals from around the world to develop and integrate person-centered practice in hearing care.

Together we develop knowledge and tools to strengthen the counseling process, enabling people to express their individual needs and preferences and take ownership of their hearing care.

Our History

The Ida Institute is a nonprofit founded in 2007 with a grant from the William Demant Foundation. To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we took a look back at how we’ve worked with our community to develop resources for person-centered care. Click the book to view as full screen.
