I have a step son, who is turning 5. He got a cochlear implant on his right side when he was about 2 years old. He began school this last September at a school for hearing impaired. I am concerned that he still does not talk at all. Not one word. Is this normal? is it because he got the implants late? Do some children never develop the ability to speak even with the cochlear implant? He does respond to his name when you call him, so I know that he can hear when he is wearing it. Any input would be appreciated.
