What resources do parents need to make informed decisions for their children at each step along that journey? To explore that question, the Ida Institute invited a multi-disciplinary group that included surgeons, speech therapists, audiologists, teachers, and a psychologist to participate in a family-centered CI Seminar in Skodsborg, Denmark. The 21 professionals representing 14 different countries joined with Ida staff and advisors to take a long view of how the needs and attitudes of children with cochlear implants, and those of their parents, grow and change throughout childhood.
The most important thing for a family to do is enjoy their child!
