Raising confident teens
The Raising Confident Teens Toolkit has been developed to help parents and teachers optimise learning in and out of the classroom for children with CochlearTM Implants or Baha® Sound Processors.
This toolkit also aims to cover practical and emotional support strategies parents and teachers can adopt to help build confidence and encourage self-advocacy in teens.
The resources are designed to provide support for children aged 10-16 years old, that may be transitioning from primary school into a high school environment.
Cochlear Confidence Guides:
Adult Cochlear Implant Home-Based Auditory Training Program
The Adult Cochlear Implant Home-Based Auditory Manuals have been designed to provide hands-on material that are flexible and adaptable enough to cover a range of auditory abilities.
Music should be fun, beautiful, funny, sad, soothing, and exciting – maybe all of those things at the same time. HOPE notes is a music program designed to support cochlear implant and hearing aid users improve music perception and appreciation using original songs, traditional Folk, Blues & Country styles and some familiar tunes played in unexpected ways. Through practice we want you to be able to enjoy music with your cochlear implant.
HOPE notes includes a CD, DVD, and a detailed user guide including lyrics designed to assist and enrich your use of the program. The DVD incorporates both visual and audio cues, while the CD (designed for use on the go) focuses solely on the audio component of the program.
A testimonial from a cochlear implant recipient who enjoyed the HOPE notes program:
"The first time I just watched and heard through the DVD. I smiled, hummed with and felt really for the first time ever to be invited into an advanced musical world which was perfectly adapted to me as hard of hearing. Every detail was visualised!"

Adult aural rehabilitation guide - Placement questionnaire
Sometimes there is limited time or a limited number of sessions for an adult's auditory rehabilitation. To create a treatment plan that is efficient and effective, it is useful to determine the recipient's present level of auditory functioning and go from there. This placement questionnaire allows the clinician to establish goals and select activities that are appropriate for the individual needs of each recipient.
