    Wishing your daughter the best!
     
    Booth testing is very helpful for our audiologists but just as important are the phoneme errors you are reporting.  Great job keeping track of those errors and reporting them to her audiologist!  Monitoring those errors will let you know when a new MAP may be needed.  I use the IOWA phoneme test and if I am consistently getting the same phonemes wrong, I know I need a tweak to my MAP.  I will tag you in the post about IOWA.
    Roger Touchscreen is a fabulous mic for school.
    Since your daughter is SSD, you can record doing the IOWA test and then deliver that audio only to the CI side.  Maybe record the IOWa test more than once, so she doesn’t memorize the sequence!

    It is free but we need to register.  It will be captioned.  I registered.
    Here is the info:
     
    You are invited to a virtual HEARPEERS meeting.
    During this hour long webinar our MEDEL experts will be discussing listening practice and strategies to help during this time of facial coverings and masks. Many cochlear implant recipients rely on lip reading to help them understand speech and therefore may feel discouraged with their speech understanding during this time. However, there are programs and strategies that you can use to help you and I hope you are able to attend the virtual meeting.
    Two dates are provided for your convenience, please note that the same topic will be discussed on each day, so you will only need to register once.
    Upon registration, you will receive a separate email that will give you details about how to log on to the meeting.
     
    If you happen to fall in the waitlist for a meeting time, you will receive an email from our events team once space has opened up to register you for the event.
     
     
    You can register by clicking the link below.

    Hello @I.D
    Welcome to HearPeers! 
    Although I qualify for CIs in both ears only one ear is implanted. 
    I have been implanted almost 2 years and I don't feel as though I'm at a disadvantage with only one CI. I am able to converse easily with others, hear very well over the phone, enjoy music, able to make out sounds coming from far away, hear birds chirping, enjoy TV, YouTube and the like. Just last weekend I heard a clock ticking for the very first time! 
    With the right aural rehabilitation and mappings your child ought to do well too. 
    Let me know if you have any questions.

    @Ernie are you able to get your audiologist’s email? I email my Audi for appointments and if I’m experiencing any issues. It’s very been very helpful during this pandemic time

    @Ernie no I don’t shave the spot where the magnet from the processor goes. It’s not necessary. I wiggle my magnet/processor so it has close contact to my skin. Since you’re so recent from surgery, it could be internal swelling. My surgeon told me it could take 6 months for the internal swelling to completely go down. Not sure if the same applies 4 years later. I would check with your audiologist about the processor not staying on your head. They would be able to advise if you need a stronger magnet if needed

    Hi @Ernie! Welcome to the group 😁
    Congrats on your CI. @Mary Beth has touched on some good points/solutions. I have really long, thick hair (now thanks to the pandemic) and when I put my sonnet or rondo on - I tilt my head and I slide the processor up as opposed to sliding down or straight on. If I don’t do it right, the processor doesn’t stick at all no matter what magnet strength 🤣  maybe a stronger magnet would help. My Audi was conservative and didn’t do the strongest magnet when I was first activated.

    Hi @Ernie and welcome to HearPeers!
     
    Congratulations on your new CI.
    Have you discussed this with your audiologist?
    It is still early weeks for you so you may have internal swelling still.
    Which processor are you using?
    Typical solutions include:
    -discuss magnet strength with audiologist
    -use a headband temporarily until this resolves 
     
    There are processor specific options too.

    Mary Beth reacted to Salik in Calling all Rondo 2 users   
    i have been using Rondo 2 since last year before i was using tempo/opus 1 since 2002, i m happy as how light and easy to hide in hair as i always keep my temp/opus 1 hidden in long hair. The only downside is if i play sport it might fall off, also i had to remove my rondo 2 before going on the roller coasters ride with my kids as i knew it might fall off by sudden movement of G-force as it has happened before with my tempo/opus but got it saved by behind the ear hook.
    The sound of rondo 2 is significantly better than old tempo/opus but i like the sound of sonnet 2 which i had it for a trial for few days but prefer Rondo 2 due to size n lightness. Also at first i didnt like the idea of charging everyday for 4 hrs but i got used to, in travelling i keep my old audi processor and power bank to recharge in long flights.
