This chapter discusses two approaches to studying the relationships between speech perception and language measures: an empirical multivariate regression analysis of longitudinal data from a large group of children and a more analytical approach based on a few simple assumptions about the ways in which hearing, lexical knowledge and speech production abilities might be combined to yield a predicted score for a speech perception test. The two approaches lead to some strong hypotheses about the effectiveness of cochlear implants compared to hearing aids for some groups of children, and about the effectiveness of language-based habilitation on the speech perception of children with hearing loss. These hypotheses are being tested using clinical and experimental data.
