More than 324,000 individuals use cochlear implants worldwide, and this number is consistently increasing. Aural rehabilitation services are necessary for many reasons. These services help individuals utilize their device(s) to increase speech perception and word recognition, allowing them to better understand spoken language. They also encourage selfadvocacy skills and active participation in conversation across all settings and contexts. Limited and low levels of insurance coverage/reimbursement impede access to cochlear implants and aural rehabilitation services for adults following cochlear implant surgery.
