For nine months now Drew's Mom and I have been researching hearing loss, sign language and cochlear implants. We've learned a great deal, but we have had difficulty finding information on one particular part of Drew's adventure.
How do they set, adjust, or "map" the cochlear implant once it is functioning to let someone hear?
I found this article entitled "Mapping a Cochlear Implant" and found it helpful to understand how exactly they get it to work. It is also timely, as we will be meeting Cyndi Warner on Thursday to have Drew's bilateral cochlear implants activated for the very first time!
