From checking that students' devices are working properly to creating an environment that makes hearing easier, teachers of children with cochlear implants, hearing aids, and other hearing devices can make many small adjustments to facilitate learning.
Along with positive behavioral intervention to prevent challenging behavior, it is also critical to provide children with a high-quality supportive environment, foster self-regulation and make sure a child’s hearing aid or hearing implant is working correctly so that they can best hear all of the sounds of speech.
Understanding music is a complex process. MED-EL's cochlear implant technology makes it possible for users to perceive and appreciate music.
Since 2006, each channel or pair of electrodes in MED-EL’s cochlear implants has had its own current source. These 12 channels with independent current sources allow each electrode pair to stimulate the cochlea with more flexibility. For instance, several different electrode pairs can stimulate different places in the cochlea at precisely the same time, which is often referred to as simultaneous or parallel stimulation.
The effects of deafblindness vary depending on the degree of vision or hearing loss but can impact communication, mobility, and access to information. It is therefore imperative that teachers and healthcare professionals adopt a collaborative approach to ensure the best outcomes while addressing the diverse needs of individuals within this population.
