Technical Report
Full-text available
Frequency modulation (FM) and remote microphone (RM) technology is a well recognized way to improve speech perception in adverse listening environments. FM systems are known to improve speech understanding in noisy situations (Lewis et al, 2004; Jerger et al, 1996) and its advantages in deaf children (King 2010), infants (Thibodeau, 2008) with coch...

Full-text available
Speech perception skills in cochlear-implant users are often measured with simple speech materials. In children, it is crucial to fully characterize linguistic development, and this requires linguistically more meaningful materials. The authors propose using the comprehension of reflexives and pronouns, as these specific skills are acquired at diff...
