Abstract

The speech perception abilities of 37 children with cochlear implants (single-channel or multichannel) were examined as a function of age at onset of deafness. There was no significant difference in the speech perception abilities of implanted children who were born deaf and those of implanted children who lost their hearing during the first 3 years of life. In contrast, the performance of children whose age at onset of deafness was 5 years or later was significantly better than that of the children with congenital or early-acquired deafness on tests of stress pattern categorization, closed-set word identification, open-set identification of common phrases, and lipreading enhancement.
