Abstract

The speech perception abilities of 19 children with onset of deafness before age 3 years was examined after they received the Nucleus multichannel cochlear implant. The children were divided into two groups based on age at onset of deafness: children with congenital deafness (n = 8) and children with onset of deafness after birth but before age 3 (n = 11). There was no statistically significant difference between the scores of the two groups of subjects on 12 of the 13 speech perception tests administered. This finding suggests that children who are born deaf have the potential to derive the same benefit from cochlear implants as do children who have had some exposure to spoken language before the onset of their deafness. Examination of performance in terms of communication mode revealed that prelingually deafened children with implants who used oral communication obtained significantly higher scores on only 2 of the 13 speech perception measures than did children who used total communication. The data suggest that communication mode does not appear to account for large differences in speech perception performance among prelingually deafened children with multichannel cochlear implants.
