Cochlear implant specialists are conveniently on campus

There are many students with cochlear implants at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID), and the numbers are growing. NTID first began serving students with cochlear implants in 1984. Currently, there are over 400 students with cochlear implants on campus.

The Communication Studies and Services Department audiologists and speech-language pathologists offer a wide range of cochlear implant services to students, faculty and staff in the college community.

We look forward to working with you for the following cochlear implant services:

  • Mapping
  • Troubleshooting 
  • Consultations
  • Assitance with upgrades

Please know that appointments tend to fill quickly.  If you have an immediate need due to a broken part, we recommend that you place an order for replacement directly through your cochlear implant company.  You should then visit us in the Audiology Center, as we may be able to loan you a part while you wait for your replacement to arrive.

For assistance with implant equipment problems outside of clinic hours, please contact your cochlear implant manufacturer directly. 

Cochlear: 800-523-5798,
Advanced Bionics: 800-678-2575,
Med-El: 888-633-3524,

Our department also welcomes inquiries concerning cochlear implants from outside the college community.  We look forward to working with you.
