Cochlear Implants

Cochlear implants are electronic devices that are surgically placed under the skin behind the ear. They convert environmental sounds into electrical impulses and send those impulses to the brain. The opportunity for cochlear implantation extends beyond children who are deaf or hard of hearing and many children who are deaf-blind are now the recipients of a cochlear implant. The information presented here focuses largely on the growing body of information related to cochlear implants for children having combined hearing and vision loss.
