Understanding the Functions of Cochlear Implants and Bone-Anchored Hearing Devices as Communication Tools
Have you ever wondered exactly how implanted hearing devices work? Did you know that there are two completely different types?
Join Sam Harris and Olivia Rains, ODHHS Communication Access Specialists, for this fun and interactive training as they discuss how Cochlear Implants and Bone-Anchored Hearing Devices function, and what the differences are in their functions. Olivia and Sam will dive into “myths” about implants and share stories, as well as go into tips and strategies on how to connect implant users who are with deaf and hard of hearing to communication and technology.
This will be a beneficial webinar for professionals who work with individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as those curious to learn about implanted devices.
