What is the DCIG?

We hear this question quite frequently. However, the question should actually be: Who is it? Because the DCIG, that’s people who live with hearing aids or cochlear implants. Most of them rely on spoken language communication, others use sign language and some are even bilingual! We give advice, support and act as intermediaries.
