Excellent advice R2D2! I have to say I wish the other dhh sites out there were a bit more "It's amazing, but....." in regards to the CI. Some of them almost seem to be infocommericaling it.
Audiofuzzy, it's possible that the audi may not be very familiar with CI eligibilty criteria. Some who don't have a lot of experiance with it might think that its a treatment for ALL severe and profound losses.
