KCUR Show about Deaf Culture and Cochlear Implants

KCUR, the local NPR station in Kansas City, aired a show about deaf culture and cochlear implants on its Central Standard program. The panelists included Katie Locus, an English teacher at KSD; Bridgette Polson, a mother who opted not to have cochlear implant surgery for her daughter; and Rob Jefferson, a late-deafened adult who benefits from the cochlear implants he received several years ago.

A video of the program can be seen at: http://kcur.org/post/senses

Central Standard is hosted by Gina Kaufmann and produced by Matthew Long-Middleton.
