Cochlear implant benefits: This device is specialized for people who hearing aids do not work on. Test must be done before the implant is put into place. Ear evaluations of the car canal and middle ear are done to ensure no infections. A physical evaluation is to check for any problems and hearing examination to find how much you can and cannot hear with a hearing aid. The x-ray exam is to study the inner ear before surgery.

Oral-Motor Debate: This type of rehabilitation is very controversial. Does it improve speech or not? That is the real question up for debate. “For example, a clinician who uses oral-motor rehabilitation may have children blow bubble, lick lollipops, brush teeth with a special brush, chew thick foods (like beef jerky) in order to isolate and develop muscles in the mouth.” These treatments are in dispute, “despite the fact that ASHA (the American Speech and Hearing Association, and main Speech therapy organization) supports research that would prove efficacy of oral sensory motor treatment, and the fact that there is substantial research and literature on the topic.” Keeping up on new advancements for Speech Path is very important to the field of study and for patients of all ages. Even with reliable research should SLP’s use this treatment or not?

Sometimes called a "bionic ear," the cochlear implant can restore hearing for many kinds of hearing loss.

cassy colligan's comment, February 17, 2014 1:48 PM
To help overcome problems within the inner section of the ear, a device is surgically implanted into the cochlea called a cochlear implant. In this part of the ear nerves are found. A properly working cochlea collects “electrical signals from sound vibrations and transmit them to your auditory never (hearing nerve)” from here they are sent to the brain. The brain recognizes these as sounds. For the brain not to receive the electrical signals the cochlea is not cooperating correctly, along with the hearing nerve not being stimulated. This leads to hearing loss which can be seen in different ways.

What is a Hearing Loop: It is a wired sound system where the loop will transmit sound electronically. The sounds are then detected by a hearing device. Through a telecoil it acts as a “wireless antenna” linking sound to the listener. The sound fed gets looped back to be delivered easily.

Candidates for cochlear implants: Adults who have sever hearing in both ears, do not benefit from hearing aids, other medical problems, are risky for surgery, and desire to hear. Many children are also potential candidates for the implants. The child has to have hearing loss in both ears, do not benefit from hearing aids, healthy, have understanding of the process, be active in habilitation/rehabilitation, and support the program.
