Professional Preparation in Cochlear Implants (PPCI) is an intensive program for professionals providing early intervention (0-5) and transition services for children with cochlear implants.
It is specifically designed for teachers of deaf children, speech-language pathologists and educational audiologists with beginning-to-limited experience in providing (re)habilitation services to children with implants.
Professionals who are currently in supervisory or leadership positions and who are responsible for making decisions regarding children who are 0-5 and present with hearing loss will also benefit from this program.
PPCI on-site course work is supplemented by rigorous advance study and long term follow-up culminating in a three-day summer meeting to fulfill requirements of the program.
Nine graduate credits from Smith College are awarded upon successful completion of all elements of PPCI.
