Hearing impaired students had prelingual
bilateral severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss and have been using a unilateral cochlear implant for at least two years.
Objective: To evaluate the auditory functions and progress of speech development in children with and without cochlear anomalies who underwent cochlear implantation due to prelingual
profound sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL).
The present audit supports the claim that bilateral CI in severe prelingual
bilateral SNHL is better than unilateral CI, which is statistically significant for auditory perception, however, at increased cost.

sensorineural hearing loss," International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology, vol.
For the three affected individuals in both families (F1-II-1, F2-II-1, and F2-II-2), the hearing impairment was prelingual
and bilateral, and the severity ranged from moderate (F1-II-1) to profound (F2-II-1 and F2-II-2) (Figure 1(d)).
The participants were three female children, 10-12 years of age, who were diagnosed with prelingual
bilateral sensorineural deafness and used a unilateral cochlear implant (CI) and contralateral hearing aid.
In the middle of the chapter, Klein discusses the similarities shared between Julia Kristeva's concept of "chora," a prelingual
phase prior to the mirror stage, and Vladimir Jankelevitch's "ineffable" philosophy of music (pp.
The individuals who were affected had sensoryneural hearing loss that was congenital or had prelingual
onset, and the severity ranged between mild to profound hearing loss.
Exceptions were observed in the TMPRSS3 gene, which was reported to be associated with two different phenotypes: DFNB10-associated hearing impairment has been reported to be prelingual
(OMIM 605511), whereas DFNB8-associated hearing impairment is typically late onset and postlingual (OMIM 601072).
The examined group consisted of 337 subjects (including 132 affected) from 54 families from Syria, where 2 or more subjects (up to 6) showed a prelingual
, profound, sensorineural, bilateral, and nonsyndromic hearing loss within a family.
In present study, 62 (91.1%) children were diagnosed as prelingual
and 6 (8.8%) children were diagnosed as postlingual hearing impaired.

deafness who use cochlear implants.
