Ted Talk Tuesday

This is an AMAZING talk.  If you teach students with hearing challenges, this will be great for you to see and learn about.  Actually,  this is important for all of us to learn about!

If you don’t have 16 minutes to watch this, I encourage you to click on the website and read the transcript.  It’s very interesting.

Charles Limb performs cochlear implantation, a surgery that treats hearing loss and can restore the ability to hear speech. But as a musician too, Limb thinks about what the implants lack: They don’t let you fully experience music yet. (There’s a hair-raising example.) At TEDMED, Limb reviews the state of the art and the way forward.

What did you think about this?  Do you teach any students with cochlear implants?
