Communicative and Linguistic Abilities of Italian Deaf Children with Cochlear Implantation

The project aim to provide new evidence on the role of CI on language and communication in children, and to clarify which factors (e.g. age at diagnosis of hearing loss, age at beginning language rehabilitation, type of speech-therapy) could potentially explain the individual differences. Families and operators will be informed about the results of the assessment in order to support and address the educational and rehabilitative process in a more effective way
