Innovations in hearing aid and cochlear implant technologies mean children with hearing loss have more access to auditory information and more opportunities to develop age appropriate spoken language (Cole & Flexer, 2007).
There are evidence-based fitting protocols for air conduction hearing aids to provide optimal amplification to infants and young children (e.g. AAA, 2013, Bagatto et. al, 2010).
To our knowledge, there are no agreed upon evidence based fitting protocols for children using bimodal devices.
