Pediatric Outcomes: Cochlear implant outcomes in children have improved importantly as a result of newborn hearing screening, early identification and intervention, and early cochlear implantation (under 18 months of age for a child born deaf). Additionally, appropriate parent-centered therapy has been shown to result in better speech and language development, academic outcomes close or equivalent to hearing peers, and social-emotional development.

The following presentations were given during CI2016, Toronto and include the following topics: age of implantation, speech development, social skills, teenagers, asymmetrical loss and visual attention.

The mission of the American Cochlear Implant (ACI) Alliance is to advance access to the gift of hearing provided by cochlear implantation through research, advocacy and awareness.
