Child with a cochlear implant
-- With high quality, interactive modules designed to be completed in as little as 15 minutes on topics such as an’ Overview of Cochlear Implants and Cochlear Implants at School’, this is a growing area of successful education.
It is also possible to download ‘Top Tips’, checklists and assessments to use and adapt to different needs. The ethos of The Ear Foundation’s Education Online
is about getting practical resources and information, developed by specialists in the field to as many people as possible in a format that is free and adaptable.
The Ear Foundation’s Chief Executive, Sue Archbold says: “ This a technological era and implantable hearing devices are enabling deaf people to communicate in ways previously unthinkable, but technology is also driving the way in which education can be delivered and again The Ear Foundation is at the forefront of change.”
NOTES TO EDITORS:
The Ear Foundation was founded in 1989 by surgeon Gerry O’Donoghue, audiological scientist Barry McCormick and teacher of the deaf Sue Archbold to fund and provide cochlear implants and demonstrate their benefit in children, recognising the devastating effects that deafness in childhood and adulthood has on language and communication developments.For further media information please contact: Louise Esplin, Esplin PR, Tel: 01235 850115.
