Cochlear Implant Study

Cochlear Implant Study

Ottawa Glandorf high school champion swimmer, Ben Sealts, has impressed many with his talents in the water. But how many also realize this high school senior is deaf, and has been that way since birth? When he’s not swimming, Sealts wears a cochlear implant, a device that allows a deaf person to hear. But for many, communication challenges still remain. Now, as Clark Powell shows us, researchers have launched a high-tech study to better understand a deaf child’s learning process, which could not only help these children, but their parents, too.
