This study aimed to investigate the relationships between some basic auditory processing skills, subject variables and speech perception ability in young children using cochlear implants. A modification of the play audiometry procedure was used to measure electrode discrimination and "rate-of-processing" ability in seventeen 4-10 year old children. In the electrode discrimination task, children responded with a game-like motor response when a repeating stimulation on a reference electrode "changed" to a different electrode. In the "rate-of processing" task, children had to respond to the "change" to a different electrode, when the duration of the stimuli and the time interval between the stimuli were decreased. Normally hearing children were assessed on this task with acoustic stimulation. Nonverbal intelligence, speech feature discrimination and closed-set word recognition were also measured in the children using implants.
