The effects of early acoustic hearing on performance on a non-word repetition test was examined for 29 children with cochlear implants (CIs). Children with normal hearing (NH) generally outperformed children with CIs in both phonetic and suprasegmental outcomes. For the children with CIs, those who had more early history of hearing aid (HA) use performed better on the non-word test than those with less HA use at an early age.
