This video was circulating around Facebook and I thought I would share it! It is one families experience with activating their son's cochlear implant for the first time!
I love this experience for this family! Now that being said this experience doesn't happen for every family. Some children can become overwhelmed and cry, have a different type of reaction when their cochlear implant is turned on or may not react at all.
Cochlear Implants are not for every person or for every family. There is a qualification process where you will work very closely to an Audiologist, Speech-Language Pathologist, and Educator of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. If you have any questions don't hesitate to leave a comment or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
