Summary/Abstract: The article presents successful and unsuccessful case stories of children after cochlear implantation. They illustrate considerable differences in the development of children with cochlear implants installed: from high development scores for the age group and the ability to attend regular school classes with hearing pears, to a significant delay not only in relation to the age group, but also in relation to deaf children of the same age who receive special education. The article shows that a failure to complete the initial stage of rehabilitation after cochlear implantation precludes further development of the child as a hearing individual and makes complete socialization impossible.
