Program Description

At Cochlear, we know how important the telephone is to stay connected to friends and family. To help you get started with telephone communications, and for ongoing practice, we have developed a simple training tool to help you gain confidence in your phone communication abilities. For your convenience, this program consists of recordings that can be accessed on a daily basis. Activities can be completed in 3 ways:

  1. Without visual cues or information.
  2. With a printed copy of the text used while listening to the recording.
  3. As a reference material when a specific portion of the message cannot be understood.

Where to get started:

We are glad to help you sharpen your telephone communication skills. To begin, please complete a brief questionnaire to determine which skills you need to improve most. Your answers will guide your use of the Telephone with Confidence program and future practice materials.
