I applaud Darrell Rose for the concerns he raises about the use of cochlear implants in prelingually deaf children. The research by Dr. Rose and his colleagues appears to substantiate what several of us working in residential schools have suspected: many prelingually deaf children have been inappropriately recruited, implanted, and labeled as “successful recipients” according to audiologic test results, often with minimal concern about the long-term social, emotional, cultural, and communicative impact that the device may have on the child’s life outside the sound booth.
