Cochlear implants are controversial topic among people who have hearing loss. Some are not very supportive because they believe it will take their language away and deprive them of their culture. They also feel that there is nothing “wrong” with them and that they do not need to be “fixed”. They believe it is important to learn sign language and explore other safer and less invasive options first, such as hearing aids. This is why we highly recommend that you do all your research and homework before taking the next step.
