Rehabilitation with young hearing-impaired children may be defined as a teaching; learning process where the role of the clinician is to facilitate acquisition of listening, speech and language in a normal developmental order. This is often referred to as habilitation. It differs from rehabilitation for adults, which is the process by which lost communication skills are reacquired. It is worth discussing the role of the cochlear implant as a tool in this process. For the adult with acquired hearing loss, the cochlear implant might be expected, in part, to facilitate rehabilitation by restoring the auditory sense. The aim is to facilitate speech reception and provide the adult with a speech feedback loop. For a child receiving the cochlear implant, the aims are more complex. The device needs to provide speech perception abilities to facilitate the development of the entire linguistic system, to develop a range of speech sounds, to enable speech monitoring via auditory feedback and to access shared knowledge of the world.
