Intended Audience: Teachers of the Deaf/HOH, Administrators

I am happy to share four fact sheets containing information about cochlear implants, hearing loss, and language/reading issues connected to kids who are Deaf/HOH. These documents were prepared last year through a collaborative effort by:

Central Institute for the Deaf

Missouri State University

Moog Center for Deaf Education

St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf

Washington University School of Medicine Missouri School for the Deaf

The four fact sheets can be accessed at this link:

and they include:

"Did you Know........."

"Facts about Cochlear Implants"

"Facts about Hearing Loss"

"Facts about Language and Reading"

I am so thankful to these schools for working on this for us so we can share this information with the field.  We hope you find them helpful.
