I just read about a newer technology called SoundBite that uses a receiver hooked to the teeth, along with other devices,  to transmit sounds to the brain: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303343404577516691819675900.html

Although it doesn't sound like it's a great fit for young children, it could be an option as they mature.  Are you familiar with this device?

Never heard of it! WIll have to read on. Without reading further, I don't see how this is better than a receiver in the ear to transmit sound, unless there was no outer ear available! Thanks
