Abstract This article provides a review and analysis of ancillary aural rehabilitation programs provided to adult postlingually deafened cochlear implant recipients. The benefits of cochlear implants that have been reported in the literature are summarized briefly. Then, the components of ancillary aural rehabilitation programs designed for adult cochlear implant recipients are described. Studies that investigated the effectiveness of post-implant ancillary aural rehabilitation programs are reviewed. The results of those investigations are critically analyzed. Finally, the need and direction for further research in this area is presented.
