Recorded Webinar

Advances in the diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss have greatly improved opportunities for children with severe to profound hearing loss to develop intelligible speech and the use and understanding of spoken language. Staff from the ECHO/SJIC program at Carle Foundation Hospital will share their experience in maximizing audition so expedient decisions can be made regarding cochlear implantation. They will also present data across groups of children implanted at increasingly older ages, demonstrating the distinct benefits that can result from implantation by 18 months, if not by 12 months of age.
