Perception of Voice Cues and Speech-in-Speech by Children with Prelingual Single-Sided Deafness and a Cochlear Implant

Children with single-sided deafness and a cochlear implant (CI) can perceive and use voice cues with their CI, although they do so with less accuracy than children with bilateral CIs.
