  • The cochlear implant was invented by Andre Djourno and Charles Eyries in 1957. The cochlear implant is a device surgically implanted into the human ear to aid people with minor to major hearing loss. The implant takes over the normal process of how sound is perceived and instead converts sound waves into electrical signals itself that are then read by the auditory nerves.
  • I think I want a cochlear implant.
  • Samuel Heinicke is known as the creator of oral education. Born hearing, he opened the first school for Germans in 1778 and used only the oral method for the deaf students so they could learn to speak. He believed liquids with certain tastes made it easier to form vowels, and used speech machines for visual learning. His methods lead to the spread of the oral method.
  • No more signing! Only oral speaking
