Cochlear Implant Connections (CIC) is a UNCG group Aural Rehabilitation research therapy program for late-deafened adults with cochlear implants (CI).
The CIC research study is exploring the benefits of a biopsychosocial group therapy program to meet the physical, emotional and social challenges of learning to hear again. The CIC research program is a 10-week group therapy open to newly implanted, late-deafened adult CI users.
In CIC group therapy, subjects are given instruction, structured listening practice, support, and mentoring. Some examples of CIC instruction includes:
- Learning about your implant and how it works.
- Learning about the human ear and brain working together in the implant transition process to help you listen.
- Learning how to use communication strategies to cope with difficult listening situations.
- Share your experiences and concerns with other CI users.
