This course will review past and present cochlear implant candidacy criteria for pediatrics and adults, will discuss ways to identify potential cochlear implant patients and will list barriers to appropriate referrals. We will discuss evidence-based research and provide audiological case studies to aid the clinician in counseling the patient and their family on the need to pursue a cochlear implant evaluation.
