All the DVDs are subtitled throughout and have the option to watch with signing too.
Most of the information on the DVDs, including a range of patient stories are available to view in short film clips on this website. Cilck on the links below to view.

- Cochlear implants after long-term deafness - This is a collection of patient stories from adults who have received a cochlear implant after a long period of deafness.
- Speaking for ourselves about cochlear implants - This takes the form of three films. In the first film children talk about what life is like with cochlear implants. The second film follows the journey of one family from the time their 8-month old baby has cochlear implants and visits them again two years later. In the last film two young adults who each had their cochlear implants as children reflect on their experiences.
