Welcome to the Cochlear Implanted Children’s Support Group website
CICS is an independent, voluntary group run by parents whose children have cochlear implants to help others whose children already have implants and those who are considering cochlear implantation for their child whether unilateral, simultaneous or sequential bilateral.
We offer first-hand experience of the difference that cochlear implantation can make to the lives of deaf children and their families. We can help with issues that surround life with an implanted child to provide a vital part of the pre and post implantation process – support for parents by parents.
There’s a great deal of information on the internet about cochlear implants. It can be confusing and not all of it is accurate. Our experience tells us what will be helpful for families involved in the cochlear implant world and our website offers you important but simple information about cochlear implants and how the CICS Group can help, and gives links to many helpful organisations. To find out more we invite you to click the links at the top of the page.
So get ‘clicking’ and don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to join our group, if you have any queries we’re here to help you…
