BOZELLI ZANARDI, Marcela Maria; YAMADA, Midori Otake  e  BEVILACQUA, Maria Cecília. The experience of cochlear implant adolescent users. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.1, pp. 69-89. ISSN 1677-1168.

This study aims to analyze the routine of adolescents with cochlear implant. The participants were 4 female adolescents from 13 to 16 years of age. In this qualitative research, data analysis was based on the phenomenological method. It was concluded that school life was surrounded by difficulties, mainly in Portuguese language; family life was regarded as a place of support; and dating was marked by prejudice and feelings of inferiority. The importance of friendship to the adolescents was evident, and the cochlear implant meant the satisfaction to hear and the acknowledgement of a hearing impairment.

Palavras-chave : adolescents; cochlear implant; hearing impairment.
