Profound deafness during childhood affects the normal development of auditory and speech perception, speech production, and language skills. Cochlear implants (CIs) have revolutionized the scenario of rehabilitation of profoundly deaf individuals. A prelingual deaf is one who is congenitally deaf or whose hearing loss occurred before speech development. The current review was undertaken to assess the impact of cochlear implants (CIs) in prelingual deaf children on their hearing and speech perception, speech production and language development.
