Abstract

Cochlear implants can be used to treat children with sensorineural hearing loss. In many countries for example Kazakhstan, resources are limited to treat and rehabilitate children. This study reports on the incidence of children with a cochlear implant that attend mainstream education, attending three main CI centers in Kazakhstan.

Our experience showed that the creation of specialized centers, which includes all the elements of preoperative preparation, surgical treatment and the postoperative period, can achieve results that allow the majority of children to attend regular kindergartens or schools.
