Cochlear Implant Program at Children's National Hospital


If your child is deaf or hard-of-hearing, it can significantly impact their cognitive, linguistic and social development, making spoken language, social interactions and the ability to learn in a mainstream environment difficult. If your child does not receive appropriate benefit from hearing aids, they could be considered for cochlear implant surgery to provide better auditory access for communication and speech and language development.
