The company also takes the feedback and consideration of the recipients, and all the employees of AB are so helpful, kind, and eager to help!
I am a BEA Mentor because
I enjoy helping others and educating them on AB and their technology.
I can help cochlear implant candidates by
I can be here as a resource, sharing with you tips and tricks from my own lived experiences. I can share stories of how I got through elementary school, middle school, high school, college and all the transitions between each. But more importantly, I can help by listening what you have to say!
