American Cochlear Implant Alliance (ACI Alliance) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that works to improve access to, and awareness about, cochlear implants.[1][2][3][4]


ACI Alliance was established in Delaware in October 2011 by a group of surgeons, audiologists, and speech-language pathologists.[1][5][6] Members include scientists, audiologists, speech pathologists, ENT surgeons, educators, and parent and consumer advocates.[7]

ACI Alliance partners with universities and other research organizations to conduct studies on cochlear implant-related topics and outcomes such as quality of life.[8][9] The majority of the organization’s program spending includes its annual conference, research support, and awareness.[4] The work of ACI Alliance has been highlighted by Vint Cerf.[5]

ACI Alliance participates in national coalitions including Friends of the Congressional Hearing Health Caucus, the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Alliance, and Independence Through Enhancement of Medicare and Medicaid (ITEM).[10][11][12]
