The main goal of the present study was to compare the speech perception and language skills of congenitally deaf children who received CIs in the second, third or fourth year of life. This comparison was performed using a new method named developmental trajectory analysis (DTA). e. developmental trajectories) for groups of children that differ along a potentially important independent variable such as age at intervention. Rather than comparing outcomes at a single point in 226 Audiol Neurootol 2004;9:224–233 time, or comparing only the slopes of developmental trajectories, DTA assesses the area under each developmental trajectory and provides an estimate of the average difference in outcome throughout the comparison period.

All were congenitally deaf, monolingual English-speaking children implanted before the age of 5 years, who had used the SPEAK/ACE or CIS strategies since initial device fitting and who had no other handicapping conditions. , 1993]. The RDLS assess expressive and receptive language separately. Expressive language scores were used in this study, in part because these scores are less likely than receptive language scores to be inflated by the use of iconic information when the test is administered using TC and also because the overall results were quite similar using both types of scores.
Like the CID sentences, the HINT in quiet was useful for demonstrating benefit in the poorer performers using a descriptive analysis. For the 55% of patients scoring less than 80% before crossing to HiRes (n = 28), improvements ranged from 2 to 60% (mean = 23%, median = 23%). One patient showed no change in score, and 3 patients showed decreases of less than 1% after crossing to HiRes. 220 Audiol Neurootol 2004;9:214–223 CNC Words. The CNC word test showed a greater range of scores than the easier CID and HINT-in-quiet tests.
