Phonological patterns in the conversational speech of children with cochlear implants. Journal of Communication Disorders, 41(4), 337-357. Purpose: To analyze phonological patterns in conversational speech of children with cochlear implants to determine the prevalence of developmental and non-developmental patterns.

Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 51(5), 1353-1368. Purpose: To study the long term development of speech sounds in children with cochlear implants and to determine if there was a time at which this development reaches a point of little or no change. Methods: Spontaneous speech samples were collected from twenty seven children who had been using a cochlear implant for at least 8 years and had at least two speech samples available from previous evaluations. The samples were glossed for intended words and the first 100 words were transcribed phonetically. Results: There was a consistent increase in accuracy of speech sound production from implantation to 4-6 years post-implantation in contrast to the relative plateau seen 6-10 years postimplantation. Clinical Implications: At 4 years post-implantation, a good prognosis can be formed about speech sound production later in life. It is vital that a child’s development of speech sounds is facilitated during the first 6 years post-implantation. Word Count: 148 Warner-Czyz, A. D., Davis, B. L., & MacNeilage, P. F. (2010).
