Abstract

Objectives: The objectives of this study were to identify variables which are associated with differences in outcome among hearing-impaired children, and to control those variables while assessing the impact of cochlear implantation. Study design: In a cross-sectional study, the parents and teachers of a representative sample of hearing-impaired children were invited to complete questionnaires about children’s auditory performance, spoken communication skills, educational achievements, and quality of life. Multiple regression was used to measure the strength of association between these outcomes and variables related to the child (average hearing level, age at onset of hearing impairment, age, gender, number of additional disabilities), the family (parental occupational skill level, ethnicity, and parental hearing status), and cochlear implantation.
