1. Smith, Kristen A. The Receptive and Expressive Language Outcomes of Children who have Received Cochlear Implants and have an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Degree: MA, Allied Health Sciences : Speech-Language Pathology, 2008, University of Cincinnati

A lack of research exists regarding the language outcomes of children who have cochlear implants (CI) and an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The purpose of this study was to quantify and describe the receptive and expressive language outcomes of children with CIs and ASD as measured by the Preschool Language Scale, 4th Edition (PLS-4). The PLS-4 was administered to one 5-year old male child with a CI and ASD and a control subject with normal hearing (matched by age and developmental profile). Results were inconclusive when measuring language growth from pre to post implant language functioning. The study, however, did find that children with a CI and ASD may continue to have significantly lower language levels compared to their same-disabled hearing counterparts. This study has clear implications for the prognosis and treatment outcomes of this dual diagnosis. Finally, this study calls for continued research regarding this unique population. Advisors/Committee Members: Grether, Sandra (Committee Chair).

2. Dempsey, Donna Jean. An experimental analysis of opportunity and communication response form in a child with autism and hearing impairments.

Degree: 2007, University of North Texas

An alternating treatment design was used to systematically evaluate the communication response forms, picture exchange communication system (PECS) or sign language, selection for a child with pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified, profound hearing loss, and cochlear implants. The child had a limited pool of high preference items and very few functional skills. Key factors for this child included a structured environment that created a verbal community and contingent access to high preference items. No preference in communication response form was observed. The child successfully used four response forms to communicate: gestures, PECS, sign language, and vocalization. The results are discussed in terms of decision making factors in the selection of response forms. Advisors/Committee Members: Ala'i-Rosales, Shahla, Rosales-Ruiz, Jesus, Hyten, Cloyd.
