Hearing Aids VS. Cochlear Implants

Individuals confuse these two very completely different units on a regular basis! I had listening to aids beginning on the age of two and bought a cochlear implant surgical procedure at age 20, so I believe I’ve somewhat expertise differentiating the 2. Hope this helps!

  • Hello, thank you for your video. My son (3) has EVA, he wears hearing aids, and we are learning ASL. Recently he has had a drop in his hearing and the ENT recommended we see a CI specialist for an evaluation. Chrissy, I’ve been following you since we found out about our son. Could you give us the pros/cons of your decision to get the CI? Have you experienced any shaming or negativity from either hearing or Deaf communities since? Thank you.

  • chrissy!!! i've been following you for a while and today i just found out i am very very likely to be receiving a CI for my single sided deafness!!! i'm excited to finally be able to hear in both ears again- are there any things you wish you would've known before surgery? is there anything you recommend researching or looking up? i'd love to know :D!! thank you for making the content you do

  • I’m completely deaf with a cochlear implant. I wish I could I could find my device, I lost it awhile ago :/

  • Thanks for sharing this information Chrissy! I didn't realize that receiving a cochlear implant would remove residual hearing - but it makes sense that it would. I learned something new today! ❤️

  • Hi Chrissy, its great to see you are making videos more frequently! I am a deaf ToD for mainstreamed deaf students, and my students really enjoy and benefit from your videos - thank you for what you do!
