You can also research the guidelines for having a Cochlear Implant. You can take a hearing quiz at Cochlear’s Getting Started Programme where some of the symptoms of hearing loss are outlined. There is also a Newsletter which gives you some hints and tips to hear better, funding options and download and information kit.
