When deciding on the support options for a late cochlear implant child, it’s important to important to conduct this review within the context of the student profile and current research into neural plasticity and listening/speech/language outcomes for this population. These considerations will affect goal setting and teaching and learning sequences. This lecture will provide a series of case studies of students who received a cochlear implant at a later age and the goal setting hierarchy that was engaged for each. There will also be a focus on supporting parents with coaching and guidance strategies and setting realistic expectations.
