About Sounding Board

Children putting up hands

Sounding Board has been set up to enable people to access information about the different cochlear implant systems quickly and easily.

The service has two parts. Firstly there is the forum. This enables you to ask questions about any aspect of cochlear implants and education. There is an archive of previously asked questions to browse. You are also invited to contribute your own comments and experiences

Users need to register in order to contribute to the forum. Registration is free. If you register, you will also receive a monthly newsletter which will update you on developments in the field of cochlear implantation and also on developments on the website.
The second part of the service is the Resources section. Here you can find information on cochlear implant systems, their use with FM and wireless systems, assessments and research. It also makes material in other languages available to you. There is also a section on apps.
