Mini-Course: After School-Entry


8 - Social Integration of a Child with a Cochlear Implant

Your response to peer curiosity (continued)

Be sure to mention what the cochlear implant means for day-to-day behavior in the class, and allow other children to ask questions.

Present this explanation at a time when all the students in the classroom are sharing information about themselves so you avoid singling out the child with the cochlear implant.

Refer to the information sheet Explaining a cochlear implant to a young child for additional tips.
