AB  - OBJECTIVE: The aim was to explore PA skills German-speaking preschool children
      with cochlea implants (CIs) and how these skills may be related to their speech
      and language skills. METHODS: Three monolingual German-speaking pre-school
      children aged 5;04-6;01 with bilateral CIs were tested. Their cognitive, speech
      and language skills were assessed. Six subtests of a standardized PA test battery
      were administered (i.e. rhyme identification, rhyme production; phoneme
      identification- input and -output; phoneme blending-input and -output). RESULTS: 
      All three children showed distinctive PA profiles. One boy, who had no spoken
      language deficits, struggled to complete the rhyme tasks but performed well on
      three phoneme tasks. However, he showed a discrepancy between expressive and
      receptive phoneme blending skills, scoring poorly on the expressive subtest. The 
      second boy, who displayed grammar comprehension and expressive vocabulary
      difficulties, showed a mixed profile, with a below average performance on rhyme
      production. The girl who had significant speech and language deficits scored
      below average on all six PA subtests. CONCLUSIONS: PA profiles in children with
      CI vary considerably and PA testing should include a range of different PA tasks.
      The assumed link between spoken language deficits and PA difficulties shown in
      children with normal hearing could be confirmed.
