Results: The participants of the group collectively agreed that just fitting of hearing aids on adults was insufficient and that they require further auditory training to facilitate their communication skills. There was a consensus of the group on the need to develop an auditory rehabilitation program that catered to the variations of culture, language, and dialects of the same in Indian population. Conclusion: Focused group discussion revealed that adults and geriatrics should undergo auditory training after fitting hearing aid.
