Description

A qualitative research study was conducted to gain a better understanding of a child with Cochlear Implants (CIs). A review of the literature described the developmental aspects of children with hearing loss and Cochlear Implants. The researcher performed a case study on a young boy with CIs and information was gathered through an interview of the boy’s father. The interview was audio recorded, transcribed, and coded using qualitative research methods. From this data, twelve patterns emerged. A conclusion was made that Cochlear Implants facilitate Speech and Language Development for children with hearing loss to the extent that it closely approximates the development of a child with normal hearing. In addition, a supportive family and educational system is necessary for maximal benefit.
