Abstract [en]

The present study examined reading fluency and orthographic learning in 40 childrenwith cochlear implants. Their age range was 6;0-10;11.The children were implantedwith their (first) CI at 24 months on average and thirty-four of them werebilaterally implanted. Sixty to 70 percent of the children with CI had reading skillsat or above the 45th percentile on the measures of orthographic and phonologicalword reading fluency. Speech perception in silence was moderately associated withboth reading fluency and orthographic learning. Hierarchical regression analysesshowed that phonological decoding was a strong predictor of orthographic learningafter age and non-verbal skills were accounted for. Receptive vocabulary, verbalfluency and verbal-verbal paired-associate learning predicted additional variance inorthographic learning after phonological decoding was controlled for.Phoneme awareness was the strongest predictor of both orthographic- and phonological-and decoding fluency after age and nonverbal skills were controlled.Age at implantation was not a significant predictor of any of the measures of readingor orthographic learning.These results resemble the pattern typically found in normal hearing children andsuggests that phonemic awareness and phonological decoding are crucial for orthographiclearning and reading fluency in children with CI.
