An analysis of the vowel production of a profoundly hearing impaired childbefore and after a cochlear multichannel implant
AbstractThe benefits offered by cochlear implants to hearing impaired adults are well documented. As these prostheses have gained clinical acceptance in the rehabilitation of this population, the application of cochlear implants in the management of pre- and postlingually deafened children has increased (OWens & Kessler 1989, Osberger 1989, Busby et al. 1989, Eisenburg et al. 1986).
