AB  - OBJECTIVE: To compare the English and non-English language performance of deaf or
      hard-of-hearing (DHH) children raised in homes where English was not the primary 
      language to their typically hearing peers from similar language backgrounds.
      METHODS: Case control study of bilingual DHH children with unilateral or
      bilateral non-fluctuating hearing loss defined as the most recent PTA between 26 
      and 70dB in one or both ears. Typically hearing controls included bilingual
      siblings and children recruited from the General Pediatrics practice. Subjects
      completed the OWLS-II, a validated English language proficiency tool. The
      subject's parents completed the Child Behavioral Checklist, an assessment of
      problem behavior; the Student Oral Language Observation Matrix (SOLOM), an
      assessment of the child's non-English home language; and a study questionnaire on
      the child's medical, social, and language history. RESULTS: 26 typically hearing 
      controls, 15 children with bilateral hearing loss, and 18 children with
      unilateral hearing loss participated. The groups were similar in age, sex,
      insurance status, place of birth, age at arrival in the US, and maternal
      education status. Performance on the English language oral composite was
      significantly lower amongst the bilateral hearing loss group (BHL: 66.9, 95% CI
      [56.2-77.7]; UHL: 82.9, 95% CI [75.6-90.2]; NH: 84.4, 95% CI [79.5-89.3],
      p=0.002). Performance on the SOLOM was significantly lower in bilateral hearing
      loss group. (BHL: 18.6, 95% CI [15.9-21.3]; UHL: 19.8, 95% CI [17.1-22.4]; NH:
      22.3, 95% CI [20.6-24.0], p=0.036). CONCLUSIONS: Bilingual children with
      bilateral hearing loss are at increased risk for poor oral expressive and
      receptive language development. These children comprise a particularly vulnerable
      population who might benefit from additional focused interventions to support
      their language development.
