The Illinois Cochlear Implant Chapter is a not for profit chapter of the national Hearing Loss
Association of America (HLAA)
We are a support group that offers individuals who face a common challenge the opportunity to
seek out emotional support and practical help in dealing with a major life change. We provide an
atmosphere of caring, sharing and support in times of need, most importantly during the implant
decision process. We do this by having meetings on Cochlear Implant related topics six times a
year, by publishing a newsletter for members and maintaining this web-site. The chapter is run by
and for its members.
Thanks for visiting.
