Cochlear Implants in Children: How to Start the Process and Best Optimize Outcomes
For parents new to deafness, there is often confusion about which hearing technology to pursue and when and how to do that. This introductory session on cochlear implants (CI) will review the steps to getting a CI including when and how to begin the CI evaluation, what outcomes to expect, and what families can do to maximize their child’s language development. The speaker will provide personal reflections from her own experience such as the most frequently asked question by parents–“What does it sound like?” Resources to enhance learning will be shared.
