Abstract

In this study, we report analyses of nonword repetition responses from 76 experienced pediatric cochlear implants users. Nonword repetition performance reflects the participants' reliance on their phonological system, which has been found to be related to phonological awareness skills and reading in normal-hearing children. We found that nonword repetition performance was strongly correlated with several measures of reading readiness and reading in deaf children with cochlear implants. Correlations between nonword repetition performance and reading indicate that the children relied on their knowledge of phonology to complete the reading tasks.
