Intact hearing in early childhood is essential for normal development of communication skills and language. Neural circuits are responsible for the healthy development of hearing, which is foundational for most academic skills, such as reading and language communication. Deaf babies may suffer from an ongoing deficit in communication skills and language development if they pass the time window critical for the development of these neural circuits. So cochlear implantation at a very young age may be critical. However, there are some risks in a surgical procedure, hence it is useful to know which children will benefit and what age is ideal to have cochlear implantation.
