This educational seminar for families is about different options for your childs hearing loss. The Cochlear Americas team will be talking about how natural hearing works vs a hearing aid and cochlear implants. You will be able to speak with families who have been down this path and can help mentor you though the process. Come meet other families who are going through the same experience you are and give your child the opportunity to meet others who have hearing loss.
