Audiologic findings in a child who received a single-channel cochlear implant are presented. The measures used were threshold sensitivity to frequency-specific stimuli and results on various subtests from the Test of Auditory Comprehension (Trammel, 1976), the Monosyllable, Trochee, Spondee Test (Erber & Alencewicz, 1976), and the Minimal Auditory Capabilities Battery (Owens, Kessler, Telleen, & Schubert, 1981). The results for the implanted ear indicated uneven change in performance across measures compared to results with conventional amplification prior to receiving the implant. Performance of the implanted ear did not approach performance of the better contralateral ear. Observations by teachers and guardians indicated that there was no apparent change in auditory performance even after the cochlear implant had been worn for 6 months. Overall there was no evidence that the cochlear implant worn for 6 months provided any practical benefit to this child.
