            This study aims at identifying the effect of a training program on the development of the receptive and expressive language among a sample of hearing-impaired children with cochlear implants. A purposely selected, sample of 30-children, between ages (5–7) from both sexes who had cochlear implant surgery at Al Hussein Medical Center in Jordan, was equally assigned to experimental and control groups for 3-month training program. Results revealed improvement in both expressive and receptive language skills among hearing-impaired children; they acquired more vocabulary and their reception and apprehension of words and sentences perceivably improved. In addition, their hearing ability improved and the spoken language has become the channel of communication with others and no differences were found attributed to gender. The author recommends training workshops for parents and teachers on developing the language skills of hearing-impaired children.
