I still support implantation for children, but there is lots of things that families need to consider and they should be supported with being fully educated on the pros and cons of ASL and oralism. One is not THE answer, in my opinion.
Insight understanding what is involved in having your child with cochlear implant.
Question then you need to ask, is it worth it?
Could a deaf child have a better life with sign language.
Either way, the key issue here is with or without cochlear, sign language should be viewed as a bilingual.
Its the attitude/ideology against sign language.
The other key issue here is your child success is based on parents' involvement with their learning.
This is coming from my 50 years of experiences asa hard of hearing person who speaks and signs and take BOTH worlds.
Its really the attitude that holds down your child. . Educate yourself!
