The relationship between psychosocial functioning and speech intelligibility in CWCI as compared to children with typical hearing is mixed.

• Social competence: Despite documented gains in oral language in CWCI, deficits in social competence remained after several years of implant use (Hoffman et al., 2016).

• Socialization and social integration: CWCI made significant progress over time and achieved ageappropriate social development (Bat-Chava, Martin, & Kosciw, 2005).

• Social skills and self-esteem: CWCI who were mainstreamed for more than half of the day reported having hearing friends. More than 75% reported good spoken language skills enabled them to participate more fully in all aspects of their lives (Moog et al., 2011)
