This investigation was designed to provide evidence of benefits resulting from short-term aural rehabilitation (AR) for post-lingually deafened adult cochlear implant (CI) users in a randomized controlled multi-site study. Key components of the AR intervention include auditory training, informational counseling on cochlear implant use and assistive technology, and communication management strategies training.
