Last April, our CIICA Conversation for adults with CI focused on the topic of “Reimagining CI Rehab.” One of the topics that we agreed needed more attention was the unseen but legitimate effort involved with CI use.

Our Conversations are for small groups to share their experiences with others – and last only one hour!
This one will explore topics brought up last time: Listening and Communication Effort and will be led by Kris English, Emma McCauley and Lise Hamlin.
