Cochlear Implant Benefits

A cochlear implant can significantly improve your child's ability to hear.

Severe or profound hearing loss in young children has negative effects on speech and language development. A cochlear implant may allow your child to develop or improve listening skills to support the use of spoken language. However, hearing through a cochlear implant is different than normal hearing.

A cochlear implant may also benefit a school age or older child with sudden or progressive hearing loss. It helps to develop and improve communication skills and assists children in achieving their educational goals.
