Did you know some skill building activities can help your brain adapt to listening with a cochlear implant? To help you, we have developed a series of interactive activates called skill builders in our new app, Cochlear™ CoPilot, is designed to help people with cochlear implants improve their listening skills.


In the Cochlear CoPilot app, ‘Building Blocks of Listening’ is a good place to start. It’s part of the skill builder series to help you with the fundamentals of communication – from distinguishing sounds and identifying words to helping you build your comprehension skills.

“I love the little word exercises that help me work on word recognition. I always have my phone with me and to do a quick exercise a couple of times a day is fun and interesting, and really makes me focus on my listening skills,” says Christine, a cochlear implant recipient who lives in the US.

You can choose from dozens of interactive sessions in Building Blocks of Listening, and you can select different levels to make it easier or harder to suit your personal needs.
