TI  - Effects of a wireless frequency modulation system on learning ability and
      emotional and behavior problem improvement in 11 children with cochlear implant.

AB  - Most pediatric Cochlear implant (CI) recipients may experience speech recognition
      difficulties in acoustically challenging situations and environments. The
      classroom is an environment that can interfere with listening and reduce academic
      ability depending on factors such as number of students per class, reverberation,
      the distance between the teacher and students, and existence of internal or
      external background noise. The FM system dramatically improves the individual's
      Signal to noise ratio (SNR) by delivering the teacher's voice directly to the
      child's ear with a safe and appropriate volume. In our study, children with CIs
      showed poor speech perception without the help of the FM system in challenging
      listening conditions such as 0 dB SNR. As a result of using the FM system, both
      word and sentence scores were significantly improved. In addition, FM system can 
      be beneficial in improving attentiveness, hyperactivity, behavior problems, and
      emotional symptoms in school life. This article is protected by copyright. All
