Deafblindness & Cochlear Implantation 2
This booklet is for parents of congenitally deafblind children who have been given one or two cochlear implants and the professionals working with them.
Deafblindness is a distinct disability. Deafblindness is a combined vision and hearing disability. The introduction of cochlear implants has dramatically changed the outlook for children and adults with deafblindness. Deafblindness is a very heterogenous group of disorders, ranging from congenital deafblindess with additional dysfunctions, to acquired restrictions of vision and hearing.
