Cochlear Implant Program

Beaumont's cochlear implant program offers rehabilitation services for children and their families before and after a cochlear implant procedure.

The goal of our program is to provide coordination between surgeons, audiologists, speech and language pathologists and educators to help children develop their new communication skills. A variety of services are offered.

These services include:

  • preconditioning skills prior to implant surgery
  • expanding oral communication skills
  • individual treatment sessions with parent/family training
  • group treatment programs
  • providing "one-on-one" treatment incorporating auditory training and speech production; auditory training focuses on improving skills for auditory awareness and listening, auditory detection, discrimination, processing and comprehension; these skills move from isolated sound to word to conversational levels of understanding
