- Summary -

Increasing numbers of individuals with cochlear implants are entering secondary, postsecondary educational and job settings.


- Summary -

Accommodating communication access needs of individuals with cochlear implants is no different than accommodating the communication access needs of individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing who use hearing aids, assistive listening devices and/or signing.


- Summary -

Many individuals with cochlear implants do utilize FM systems, sign language interpreters, text support, and notetakers to accommodate access to instruction, discussion, and conversation.
