Cochlear implants provide meaningful access to sound for those with more severe hearing loss. Even the most advanced hearing aids may not overcome the hearing difficulties associated with severe to profound hearing impairment. A cochlear implant bypasses the damaged areas of the cochlea and may provide improved hearing abilities for speech understanding and the perception of music and environmental sounds.
American Cochlear Implant Alliance offers an auditory rehabilitation resource, Naama’s Blog. The Blog provides support to adults who are either candidates for, or recipients of, cochlear implants and their families. Please click HERE to view blog entry topics.
