- Word recognition [ Time Frame: baseline to 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Word recognition will be measured using the Consonant Nucleus Consonant (CNC) Test, a 50 word open set test.
- Signal-to-noise ratio [ Time Frame: baseline to 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The signal to noise ratio will be measured using the Bamford-Kowal-Bench (BKB) test.
- Percent of speech comprehension [ Time Frame: baseline to 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Percent of speech comprehension will be measured by the AzBio Sentence Lists, which were created at Arizona State University and evaluate speech understanding.

Active Comparator: LACE ( Listening And Communication Enhancement )
use the commercially available auditory training program which is administered by computer as daily lessons.
commercially available LACE program which is administered by computer as daily lessons. The participants will do this program for one month
Active Comparator: NOOK (Electronic reader)
will use an electronic reader (NOOK device) to do speech tracking
will use an electronic reader (Barnes and Noble - NOOK device) to do speech tracking.will do this activity for approximately one hour per day for five days out of seven for a total of four weeks. The speech tracking activity will involve reading approximately two books within the one month time frame. The participants will listen to the book while reading an unabridged book in printed form.
|No Intervention: Control|
The primary objective of this study is to determine if aural rehabilitation adds measurable benefit and participant satisfaction to a cochlear implant recipient's overall treatment.
The secondary objective of this study is to compare the efficacy of a commercially available aural rehabilitation program (LACE) and an electronic program which takes advantage of a traditional form of auditory training (NOOK) for cochlear implant users.
