ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine the emotional recognition of 17 children with cochlear implants (CI) in situations which require the ability of paralinguistic voice processing. For such purposes, their ability to identify emotional speech was assessed and compared with those of 19 normal-hearing children and 19 normal-hearing adults. The results showed that the children with CI had a severe deficit of ability to recognize emotional speech. The rates of the correct response in the emotion identification task were 46.1% for children with CI, 65.8% for normal-hearing children, 88.5% for normal-hearing adults respectively. The CI children frequently confused happy voices with angry voices (47.8%) and frightened voices with sad voices (38.2%). Finally, the necessity for and guidelines of the development of effective procedures for enhancing the ability of emotional recognition in children with CI were discussed.
