Mentor - Cochlear Implants
Memo To: Itinerant Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

From: Jeanne Shaw (SD #8)

Hi all....
I am getting AT LEAST one student with a cochlear implant next year (in K), possibly 2 (the other will be in Grade 1 from the Montreal Oral Program). Is there anyone out there with students in primary 2-3 years post implant, who would be willing to have me spend some time with them? I have the THEORY down of what I'll be doing, but I would like to watch a couple of sessions in action!!!

AND/OR is there anyone out there who would be willing to mentor me (email?) for a few months while I get my feet wet?????

ALSO, do your SLPs work on these kids speech or do you?????

Coast or Okanagan would be best, but I'm open to going wherever for a couple days and I THINK I have administrative support for the necessary ProD.
