The understanding of emotions plays an important role from the early years of childhood and is crucial for communicating with others and for expressing ourselves. Our recognition as well as our expression of emotions develops as we do. In children with hearing loss, the recognition of emotions is more difficult and can lead to setbacks in social and emotional growth. The main aims of this study are to examine whether children with cochlear implants recognize emotions with the same efficiency as normal-hearing children, and whether early rehabilitation and time spent using cochlear implants affects their recognition of emotions. Furthermore, this study examines whether some emotions are easier for them to recognize than others. Results show that children with cochlear implants do not recognize emotions as well as normal-hearing children of the same age. Additionally, it has been shown that the earlier the rehabilitation starts and the longer the cochlear implant is used for, the more successfully the emotion recognition task is completed. Lastly, it has been proven that some emotions, like happiness and anger, are easier to recognize than other emotions, like sadness and fear
