An important factor for success with a cochlear implant is rehabilitative training following device activation/fitting. Unlike many CI programs, MCICE provides individualized rehab plans for all patients. Each patient is seen for an evaluation of auditory abilities and a treatment plan is customized to their needs and outcome goals. The audiologists and speech-language pathologists work in close collaboration to improve patient performance in all areas (hearing, listening, speaking, and language skills). Additionally, our clinical skills are supplemented with patient specific results from research studies, for those individuals who are interested.
