faithsdad, CSign has a good point there. I am deaf with some hearing in my right ear , and I do wear one powerful hearing aid. PFH is so annoying that it makes me want to wear more, even though they would do no good.
Maybe deciding by how well CI is accepted where you are is part of your decision. Grendel also had a good point about kids finding some reason to bully anyway no matter the environment.
Good luck whatever you decide.
