ACI Alliance Awarded Grant to Evaluate Cost Effectiveness of Early Identification and Intervention: Impact of Pediatric Cochlear Implantation

American Cochlear Implant Alliance was awarded a grant by Oberkotter Foundation to update the seminal Project HOPE study published in 2000 by Mohr et al. This work has been a central component of public policy discussions on pediatric deafness for two decades. ACI Alliance Board of Directors Chair Meredith Holcomb AuD notes “We recognized the need to update the earlier work and evaluate the effect of much earlier access to cochlear implants and new models of language learning that emphasize the key role of families in teaching deaf children to listen and talk.”
