Mini-Course: Challenging Situations


6 - Hearing and Language Challenges

Strategies to overcome these hearing challenges

You may be able to mitigate many of the hearing challenges for a child with a cochlear implant by making minor changes to the classroom.

Simple changes such as closing blinds or curtains, enforcing a "one voice" rule, and seating the child with the cochlear implant close to you, toward the front of the classroom, will go a long way in helping the child hear in class.

Please refer to the mini-course entitled Arranging your classroom for a student with a cochlear implant.
