Join us on Wednesday, September 22nd at 11am PST for the next educational webinar in our LISTEN & LEARN series entitled “The Key to Success with Cochlear Implants? Setting Realistic Expectations”.
If you are considering getting a cochlear implant or are within the first six months of being implanted, this webinar is for you. Our speaker, Julie Husting, returns to host her second Listen & Learn webinar as she discusses the importance of realistic expectations during the cochlear implant journey. Julie is a long-time patient of Shohet Ear Associates as well as a mentor to many who are trying to navigate life with hearing loss and cochlear implants. Julie is a bilateral cochlear implant recipient, an author, speaker and she serves as Chapter Leader of the Bionic Ear Association for Advanced Bionics.
During her presentation, Julie will be discussing what you can expect in the initial days and months after the cochlear implant is turned on. Getting a cochlear implant is not a “quick fix”; it is a long journey and it helps to know what the process is like ahead of time. Keeping expectations realistic is a key element to success during any transition and a cochlear implant is no different.
Julie’s talk will address some of the questions that she is most commonly asked such as:
- How long does it take to adjust to a cochlear implant?
- What to expect from the first day a cochlear implant is turned on through the various stages after activation.
- What are the keys to success?
