Improve the listening environment


This section is suitable for any professional working with a cochlear implant user who wants to help them hear better. It discusses the issues of how to make the environment as optimal as possible in order to help the implant user hear. Some of the guidance is more suitable for those supporting children in an educational, child minding or nursery setting, but solutions could be applied elsewhere, such as in a home or office environment. The pages discuss the challenges an implant user may face and some practical solutions.
