About Us

CICADA Australia Inc is a registered charity and volunteer organisation, helping and supporting hearing impaired Australians who use Cochlear implants to hear.

CICADA is here to help you wherever you are in your cochlear implant journey, whether you are just starting to research hearing technology, or are a seasoned user looking for ways to connect with like-minded people.

At CICADA Australia we believe those who have first-hand experience with a Cochlear implant can best explain what it is like to be deaf or hearing impaired and how technology has worked for them.

Cicada can help you in your decision to go ahead with a CI

We advocate for all those who want to know more about hearing implants and can reassure them with our own personal experience.

CICADA is a founding member of the CIICA, the CI International Community of Action, an international alliance of advocates who are developing living guidelines to bring together high ethical standards to all the disciplines involved in the provision of implant services.

We also have alliances with other organisations which can help you find hearing solutions for your needs, further information about hearing loss or cochlear implants or to find a group with which to connect: 

Hearing Matters Australia, Nextsense, SoundFair, Hear For You, Cochlear Implant International Community of Action (CIICA), Deafness Forum of Australia, Aussie Deaf Kids, Parents of Deaf Children
