The purpose of this study was to investigate the diagnostic procedures that audiologists use in order to determine candidacy for cochlear implants in children who are deaf and have one or more additional or multiple disabilities. A secondary purpose of this investigation was to determine how these audiologists measure the audiologic and speech perception outcomes of children with multiple disabilities after cochlear implantation. This study was conducted using survey methodology, studying audiologists working in cochlear implant centers across the United States.
