Rehabilitation therapy

Perhaps the best therapy, especially just after you are activated, is using the implant as much as possible!  Whenever you hear a sound that you can’t identify, ask somebody what it is.  After a couple of times hearing that sound, you will be able to look it up in your mental dictionary of sounds when you hear it.  And it won’t take long before you can identify the sound directly without having to think about it.
