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.
