Abstract

This article presents a focused review of language, speech, and comprehension outcomes in children with cochlear implants. Language acquisition with early-age implants and later-age implants are discussed, along with literacy and comprehension skills. A wide range of language outcomes is possible for children with cochlear implants, but many can achieve listening and spoken language skills at the same rate as their hearing peers. Appropriate auditory rehabilitation and parental guidance is vital for the development of listening and spoken language skills.
