CI Resources

When I started researching cochlear implants last fall, I found a couple of great discussion groups where I learned from others’ experiences and stories. There are two good ones I recommend: Cochlear’s Forum for those considering a cochlear implant, and individuals who have a cochlear implant and their relatives (especially parents of deaf children). Coclear also helps make Connections. The other is CI Hear.
Other good places to research CI is the manufacturer Web sites. Cochlear, Med-El, and Advanced Bionics. One of the hardest things to do was choose the brand of the device. I’ve selected Cochlear, but this by no means indicates the other two aren’t good quality. They all have their strengths and weaknesses. It’s based on the wearer’s needs.

    I also found that Cochlear site very helpful for people considering the implant. Please let me know about any other helpful sites. This isn’t really the kind of topic that is easy to find help on.
