The decision to give one’s child a cochlear implant is a very difficult one. This video presents differing viewpoints on the topic. A majority of the discussion occurs in casual round-table type conversation between the two parents of a young eighteen month old deaf child, Emily, a deaf mentor who uses ASL, and a hearing support therapist.
