I have been wanting a more specific view of CIs in terms of direct service.  So much of the training/explanation I get is from a medical perspective that is not knowledgeable of the way children learn, how brains work (not only in processing sound), etc.  I really appreciated having evidence-based explanations/descriptions of ways to work with these kiddos, and not just a boring lecture about the input/output audiologically. (D.R., Oregon)
I liked everything this time because I felt under skilled in this area and I now am beginning to feel better about where to go with a student who has a cochlear implant.  Pratibha’s explanations are what I like the best…she explains her slides, her videos and answers questions in a way that gives examples which in turn really helps someone like me who has very limited experience with a cochlear implanted student.  (C.P., Florida)
This workshop helped me understand better what type of work a speech therapist can and should do with a child who has a cochlear implant (C.C., Maine)
Good overview of Cochlear Implants and audiology related to speech and listening as well as its application. I learned more than I expected based on the training that I had previously had. (K.K., Arizona)
These workshops always make my creative side go crazy! I'm excited to go back to school and start implementing these ideas (C.B., California)
I have been captivated by the information and the conference goes by very quickly. I've taken classes in AVT, gone to conferences, and use the techniques with my students so I was surprised at how much new information I was able to learn from this workshop. (C.L., Michigan)
The information is presented in a manner that is easy to understand and very applicable. It is a great value .... (E.M., Washington)
I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. Presentation sparked many questions and comments between myself and my co-worker (A.C., Lousiana)
