This chapter shows that children using cochlear implants attain significantly higher speech and spoken language skills than do children with equal hearing loss who do not use cochlear implants. It presents a detailed critique of complications and confounds in currently available research but concludes that some factors influencing outcomes (e.g. duration of profound hearing loss, updated technologies in the structure and management of the implant device, focus on auditory and speech skills in the educational environment) have been identified.
