Trends in educational placement and cost-benefit considerations in children with cochlear implants.
International Cochlear Implant Conference. New York, NY, USA, 1997/05/02.
To study the effect of cochlear implantation on the use of educational resources by profoundly hearing-impaired children and to determine trends in educational cost vs benefit.
Retrospective study and cost-benefit analysis.
Outpatient pediatric cochlear implant program in an academic institution (The Listening Center at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Md), in collaboration with public schools in Maryland and surrounding states.
Patients or Other Participants
School-aged children with profound prelingual hearing impairment without other clearly defined disabilities.
Thirty-five children with multiple-channel cochlear prostheses and a comparison group of 10 children without implants from « total communication » programs in the Maryland public school system.
Multiple-channel cochlear implantation and at least 1 year of a systematic auditory skill development program at the Listening Center, compared with standard educational management of children with conventional amplification.
Main Outcome Measures
Classroom placement and number of hours of special educational support used.
A correlation was observed between the length of cochlear implant experience and the rate of full-time placement in mainstream classrooms (r=0.10 ; P=04). (...)
