Exactly. The reason is that people have a false belief that hearing aids and CI cures the deafness.
It helps people to hear, like crutches help people to walk when needed.
But it is not 100%
So this false sense of CI and Hearing aids makes a person hearing. HA and CI does not make a person hear like a hearing person.. I helps one to hear more.
I am not against CI, nor against hearing aids. I wear hearing aids every day. To aid me to hear better.
