Cochlear Implants and Sign Language: Putting It All Together

Author: Debra Nussbaum, Rita LaPorta, and Jennifer Hinger

The Cochlear Implant Education Center's conference in 2002 provided an opportunity for professionals working in educational settings that include sign language to discuss issues and practices impacting effective programming for students with implants. This Sharing Ideas paper includes a compilation of the issues, ideas, and strategies that emerged from the meeting.

This is a Sharing Ideas paper. The “Sharing Ideas” series comprises working or occasional papers of interest to parents and professionals working with deaf and hard of hearing children. Works in the series are often prepared for a specific ‘occasion’ and include papers, presentations, or final reports that address a need in the field or contribute to the growing body of knowledge about educating deaf and hard of hearing children. The intent of the series is to act as a clearinghouse for sharing information from a number of sources.
