Phonological Awareness, Vocabulary, and Word Reading in Children With Cochlear Implants

A recent issue of The Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education includes an article on the phonological awareness, vocabulary and word reading abilities of cochlear implanted children.

The phonological awareness, vocabulary, and word reading abilities of 19 children with cochlear implants were assessed. Nine children had an implant early and 10 had an implant later. As a group, the children fitted early had better performance outcomes on PA, vocabulary, and reading compared to hearing benchmark groups.
