dc.description.abstractOpen-set speech perception tests were completed for a group of 52 children and adolescents who were long-term users of the Nucleus multiple channel cochlear prosthesis. Results showed mean scores for the group of 32.4% for open-set BKE sentences and 48.1% for phonemes in open-set monosyllabic words. Over 80% of the group performed significantly on these tas1cs. Age at implantation was identified as a significant factor affecting speech perception performance with improved scores for children implanted early. This factor was evident in the results at least down to the age of three years. Duration.. of profound hearing loss, progressive hearing loss, educational program and preoperative residual hearing were also identified as significant factors that may affect speech perception performance.en_US
