Several recent research studies of children who are deaf or hard of hearing and who use spoken language as their primary method of communication show that many are able to achieve vocabulary, language, and reading skUls comparable to their peers who have typical hearing (Hayes, Geers, Treiman, & Moog, 2009; Geers, 2003; Geers et al, 2008; Nicholas & Geers, 2006). [...] it is not surprising that many parents embrace the dramatic results that can be attained with a combination of early diagnosis, auditory access through hearing aids or cochlear implants, and the use of spoken language as a primary communication method.
