Course: #918Level: Intermediate1 Hour

Communication strategies are an important tool in the life of a cochlear implant recipient. While many people with hearing loss display a passive communication style with ineffective strategies, CI users can learn to be assertive, ask for what they need, and get it, thereby making conversation smoother, more accurate, and less frustrating, for both recipient and speaker. Being a fluent communicator can bring one out of isolation to a better quality-of-life.
