Cochlear Family News

A quarterly newsletter for Cochlear Family members


Issue no. 11 | Autumn 2018

New school year, new Cochlear™ Nucleus® 7 features – and more

There is lots going on in this issue of Cochlear Family News, so there’s bound to be something that interest most of our members.

For many families, September is the beginning of a new school year. Joining mainstream school is an even bigger milestone for children with hearing loss – our tips can help make the transition smooth and stress-free.

We also share advice for Nucleus 7 users – how to connect wirelessly, pairing with the Nucleus Smart App (which is now available to Android™ users as well as iPhone) and understanding how activating ForwardFocus may help some users enjoy even more conversations in the most challenging places.

Cochlear Family keeps growing and recently launched in the Middle East and Africa. Welcome to all in this region!

Finally, we get personal. Parents of baby Hazel share their advice for other parents of young children with Baha® Sound Processor. And we meet Antoine Rivière, Cochlear Family’s 100,000th member.

Happy reading!
