Abstract

Families with deaf children need information and advice by professionals of clinical and educational areas about bilateral cochlear implants performance. In fact, they receive this data from both sources and value them to the greater extent. Family information needs are not only on the usage of these devices used bilaterally but also on parenting strategies, expectations regarding outcomes over linguistic development and perseverance for hearing stimulation at home. According to the above, it is necessary to apply family centered interventions collaborating educational and clinical areas to satisfy new family needs regarding bilateral cochlear implants.
