Mini-Course: Preparing for School-Entry


5 - Arranging Your Classroom for a Student with a Cochlear Implant

Seating arrangements

Typically, you will want to place the child with a cochlear implant close to you, often in the front row of the classroom. However, you should obtain the child's input on where to sit whenever possible and allow flexibility for the child to move to be closer to other speakers.

Minimize the child's exposure to background noise by avoiding seats next to windows, doors, heating/cooling units, sinks, or other noise producing items.
