Since these children are born with congenital hearing loss, they begin to hear with cochlear implant surgery, in fact, this may mean that they are reborn, they begin to recognize sounds. Before there was an image, there was no sound, but after the implant, sound and image begin to make sense together, these children hear from normal children. They cannot hear sounds, they begin to make sense of the sounds they receive through implants, visual instruments and spatial environments increase learning, and as they receive sound stimulation with music, they have a positive effect on improving their listening, speaking and language skills.

Cochlear therapy is very important for language development. In hearing loss, there is a problem in the development of hearing and speech, since the auditory signals are missing from the relevant brain centers. It is very important for people with hearing loss to gain early language-speaking skills, early diagnosis and treatment for the cause. With auditory rehabilitation, it is vitally important for the auditory signals to go to the brain and to interpret and teach these signals for language development in the early period.
With Cochlear Implant Surgery, individuals with severe hearing loss can hear, understand and speak, while the hearing aid only amplifies the volume, the bionic ear can be performed bilaterally or unilaterally in all kinds of hearing loss.
