ABSTRACT
Purpose:
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of aural habilitation using the smartphone applications of auditory memory skills for children with cochlear implants.
Method:
Three children with cochlear implants (CIs) between the ages of 3 and 8 years participated in this study. The children attended the intervention using the smartphone applications once a week for 5 weeks. We evaluated their auditory memory skills before and after intervention, and analyzed the data using a one-group pretest and posttest design. The child’s mother attended the survey for evaluating the educational effectiveness and satisfaction from the aural habilitation using the applications.
Results:
There were significant accuracy increases in the categorical items of auditory memory tasks. The intervention effect was not significant for auditory memory accuracy in the non-categorical items. There were individual differences in mother’s perceived educational effectiveness and satisfaction with the intervention using the applications.
Conclusion:
The current study suggests that aural habilitation using the smartphone applications is effective and useful in improving auditory memory skills for children with CIs.
Key Words: Aural habilitation, Smartphone application, Auditory memory, Cochlear implants, Children.
