Your Health

Your Health is hosted by Maureen Taylor. Episode twenty. This week, a special look at Cochlear Implants. It's hard to imagine that anyone wouldn't be upset at the news their child was deaf or hearing impaired. That's news that parents of more than 2,000 children in Canada get every year. Today, kids who are profoundly deaf can receive a cochlear implant, a device that simulates hearing. They wouldn't have to go to a school for the deaf. They wouldn't have to learn sign language. And all this is decided for them, by their parents, usually before the child is four years old. That's what upsets many people in the deaf community.
