Cochlear Implanted Children's Support Group

What we do

Founded by parents whose deaf children have cochlear implants, the CICS Group was formed to help others whose children already have implants and those who are thinking about cochlear implantation for their deaf child, whether this is unilateral, simultaneous or sequential bilateral.

 

What we do

  • Offer contact, information and support based on first-hand experience
  • Put families in touch with others who have relevant experiences to share, eg cause of deafness, additional needs, method of communication, educational provision
  • Provide a quarterly newsletter
  • Organise a regular information day
  • Arrange social events for the whole family
  • Organise activity weekends
  • Host a members’ Facebook page
  • Liaise with other organisations helping deaf children
  • Provide links with other groups as well as adult CI users and some overseas families
  • Raise awareness of cochlear implants
  • Take part in campaigns and research
