Abstract

Being born with congenital hearing loss can have detrimental impacts on a child's ability to acquire language and therefore minimize their opportunities to interact with others in the way that most of us communicate. Hearing loss in both children and adults are often associated with adverse effects like depression and anxiety, and can lead to learning disabilities if the proper interventions are not put in place. Cochlear implants are a surgical insertion placed behind the ear and provide individuals with auditory input that allows them to acquire expressive language and therefore reverse the adverse effects commonly associated with hearing loss.
