Managing School-Aged Children With Cochlear Implants
The program was originally aired as part of the “Audiology 2012: Success for Students With Hearing Loss” online conference (October 17–29, 2012).
Despite the fact that many students with cochlear implants are mainstreamed in general education classrooms, these children still require classroom adaptations and special considerations. In this presentation, we'll discuss evidence-based tools and strategies for managing these students. We'll also outline expectations and special needs of children with unilateral or bilateral cochlear implants, including: measuring the expected performance, modifying classroom acoustics/arrangements, monitoring equipment, providing hearing assistance technology, adapting instructional techniques, establishing teams between a school and cochlear implant center, and getting special support from school personnel. We'll also make additional recommendations for students who are receiving a second cochlear implant or who are diagnosed with additional disabilities.
