Do deaf children with cochlear implants need sign language. Many experts agree that the answer is: Yes, they do. The author summarizes what research says. They explain that cochlear implants do not give children perfect hearing. In other words, cochlear implants don’t guarantee children will speak or understand well. Early exposure to sign language ensures deaf children are able to communicate.
