The American Cochlear Implant (ACI) Alliance is a not-for-profit membership organization created with the purpose of eliminating barriers to cochlear implantation. The ACI Alliance membership spans clinicians and scientists from across the cochlear implant continuum of care including otolaryngologists, audiologists, speech pathologists, educators, psychologists, and others in cochlear implant teams. Parents of children with cochlear implants, adult recipients, and other advocates for access to care are also active members. Our activities include research, advocacy and awareness initiatives designed to improve access to CI care. The ACI Alliance sponsors an annual clinical research meeting that provides opportunities for scientists, clinicians and others to share information.
