Join our awareness and outreach for cochlear implants and ACI Alliance

NJ. On October 23, 2019 Lisa Reznik Meyers represented ACI Alliance at a Listening Expo for educators, early intervention professionals, and parents convened by the Summit (NJ) Speech School http://www.summitspeech.org/. Lisa is the parent of an adult child with cochlear implants who authors a blog for ACI Alliance.

RI. In May 2019, ACI Alliance State Champion and CI recipient Richard Reed helped spread the word about cochlear implants and ACI Alliance at an event held in Providence RI convened by the Rhode Island Commission on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Richard answered questions about cochlear implants, shared demos of devices and explained some of the access issues children and adults face. Of course, the major issue is awareness and Richard helped with that.

            

The mission of the American Cochlear Implant (ACI) Alliance is to advance access to the gift of hearing provided by cochlear implantation through research, advocacy and awareness.
