Implant Limitations

Children with more disabilities than just hearing loss tend to lag behind other children in their learning, even with cochlear implants. That’s the finding of a new study lead by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The children made significant gains in their language skills after the implantation but the improvement did not last. Researchers presented the data at the 2009 Pediatric Academic Societies Annual Meeting in Baltimore last week.
