Thank you

This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.


This presentation will evaluate whether children with single-sided deafness (SSD) show functional improvements in listening ability after receiving a cochlear implant (CI), and if this improvement is maintained over time. Pre- and post-CI assessment data for 12 subjects, recruited from a cohort of 37 children using CI for SSD, will be presented.

During this session participants will:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of treatment options and be able to describe the pre- and post-CI assessment protocol for children with SSD.
  • Identify and explain the benefits of binaural hearing.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the audiological management and listening and spoken language therapy required to optimize outcomes.
