The purpose of this study was to investigate the change in effective communication between parents and children with cochlear implants when the parents attended a modified Hanen training course (Watson 1995). The study demonstrates that the course led to improvement in the effectiveness of the parent-child interaction, as rated by naive independent observers. The Erber rating scale (Erber et al. 1995) was implemented as a tool for evaluating changes before and after the courses. Using video samples taken at the above intervals, the ratings showed a significant increase in effective communication at the end of the courses.
