Implant Study: Positive Result

A new study finds children with cochlear implants feel about the same concerning their life as their hearing peers. Researchers at the Dallas Cochlear Implant program say the findings support their claim that implants have a positive impact on young children. In the past, research suggested that deaf children have a harder time in making friends and feeling socially accepted. Details of the study are in the February issue of the Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery journal.
