Cochlear receives FDA approval to lower age of pediatric cochlear implantation 

On March 18, Cochlear received FDA approval to lower the age of pediatric cochlear implantation to 9 months. This important change is backed by research and clinical practice that has demonstrated that the earlier a child receives access to sound, the sooner they can develop speech and language. This important change will improve access to the life changing benefits of cochlear implants.
