Introduction: The result of cochlear implantation is commonly assessed postoperatively by scores such as Categories of Auditory Performance (CAP) and Speech Intelligibility Rating (SIR) scores. Since parents are the main people involved in the day-to-day life of children, parental satisfaction also counts for the assessment of the child's progress after implantation. The objective of the study is to compare the auditory and speech outcome score with parental satisfaction after cochlear implantation in children. Methods: The auditory performance was assessed by the CAP score and the speech by the SIR score. The parents were asked for their satisfaction in their children's audiological and speech progress after surgery by questionnaire. The two results were compared to see the difference in the rating scales and the parents' satisfaction. Results: The CAP score reached a maximum of 7 in children implanted before 3 years of age and reached a maximum of 6 in children implanted after 3 years of age. The SIR score reached the highest of 5 in children before 3 years of age and a maximum of 3 in children implanted after 3 years of age. The parental score of satisfaction was also better in children implanted before 3 years of age and correlated with the CAP and SIR score results. Conclusion: The CAP and SIR scores were better in children implanted at an earlier age. The CAP and SIR scores were comparable with parental satisfaction after 1 year of auditory and speech habilitation.
