Cochlear Implant Results Can Vary. Because each cochlear implant wearer is unique, every child does not receive the same benefit: For the majority, cochlear implants provide a much larger range of sound processing and auditory awareness.

Purpose This study examined vocabulary profiles in young cochlear implant (CI) recipients and in children with normal hearing (NH) matched on receptive vocabulary size to improve our understanding of young CI recipients' acquisition of word categories (e.g., common nouns or closed-class words). The goal of this study was to longitudinally examine relationships between early factors (child and mother) that may influence children's phonological awareness and reading skills 3 years later in a group of young children with cochlear implants (N = 16).Mothers and children were videotaped during two storybook interactions, and children's oral language skills were assessed using the Cited by: A cochlear implant (CI) is a surgically implanted neuroprosthetic device to provide a person with moderate to profound sensorineural hearing loss a modified sense of bypasses the normal acoustic hearing process to replace it with electric signals which directly stimulate the auditory nerve.
