"Open a bottle of prosecco and celebrate with us the first 40 years of cochlear implantation in deaf children envisage the future! In a unique collaboration between the University of Birmingham and the British Association of Teachers of the Deaf (Midlands region) we explore the history and impact of this electronic device which stimulates the auditory nerve, and its part in changing the educational and social lives of thousands of deaf children worldwide. We trace the development and impact of this invention from its inception to the present and take a peep into the future with a fascinating mixture of short films and live presentations by professionals, academics, children with cochlear implants and their parents.
