The idea of cochlear implants met with some very embattled beginnings. People in the field of deafness have heard the idea of someone being implanted described in a number of ways as a miracle all the way to genocide and everything in between. In this webinar, we will examine the benefits of a cochlear implant and how one qualifies for the procedure. What are the realistic expectations and how does the implant impact the person's standing in the Deaf Community.
Participants will be able to list three medical components of cochlear implantation.
Participants will be able to identify two areas of impact that cochlear implantation has on the Deaf Community.
Participants will be able to define terms specific to cochlear implantation.
