cochlear implant

i am an asl hearing student, my view on the implant is that it is a good idea for someone to get a cochlear because it will give the Deaf person a chance to live in both the hearing and Deaf cultures. i believe that if you implant a young child that you should teach them asl and English so that way they don't just have one way of communication with the world and wont feel alone they will be able to have the hearing speaking world AND the deaf asl using world. also that the parents should give a good foundation for their child and let them know that they aren't any different then anyone else or that they were broken ect, to just help them to look forward and see the good in their new life.
