Mini-Course: After School-Entry


8 - Social Integration of a Child with a Cochlear Implant

Your response to peer curiosity

To meet this curiosity, you should clearly explain cochlear implants to the class at the beginning of the school year by using simple, concrete terms.

If the child enters the class mid-year, provide this explanation to the class as soon as possible after the child's entry. Perhaps you can work with the child's parents to develop an age-appropriate explanation of the child's cochlear implant.
