ABSTRACT

This study aims to analyze the phonological awareness abilities and development trends of phonological awareness for children with cochlear implants in elementary school grades. For these purposes, we compared the phonological awareness abilities of children with CIs with those of normal hearing children, and to analyze the differences of phonological awareness abilities of children with CIs according to the grades. Furthermore, this study examined the relationships of phonological awareness abilities and age at implantation in these children. 79 children with CIs and 113 CA matched normal hearing children were executed by the phonological awareness test. The results showed that there were significant differences between children with CIs and normal hearing for the first grade on syllable tasks, and were significant differences between groups up to the second grade in phoneme tasks. There were no significant differences of syllable tasks scores in terms of grade, whereas there were significant differences of phoneme task scores according to the grades up to the third grade in children with CIs. There were no significant relationships of between phonological awareness and age at implantation in children with CIs. These results could be used to develop the phonological awareness and reading intervention program for children with CIs.
