This work provides a global non-device-specific overview of service delivery and rehabilitation strategies for cochlear implant users. The contributors to the book have experience with most of the commercially available devices and several experiemtnal ones. there are approaches from 17 different clinics representing four continents, 13 different countries and eight different languages. The number of patients seen by these teams totals more than 3000, or about one-fifth of those currently using cochlear implants worldwide. This book is divided into two parts. The first covers systems for service delivery. Cochlear implantusers, especially children, require more than an exercise programme; they require a complete service encompassing medical, psychosocial, educational and therapeutic support. The authors provide models for developing comprehensive rehabilitation programmes. The second part of the book examines the practical implementation of person-to-person rehabilitation, ranging from preoperative training to postoperative language support and assessment of the psychological impact of cochlear implantation.
