Abstract: In this paper, we describe our current work in developing a computer-based aural rehabilitation tool for profoundly deaf children that have recently acquired Cochlear Implants. The software is an interactive program aimed at young Arabic-speaking children, called Rannan. Evaluations of Rannan involved comparing different input modalities and evaluating the effectiveness of sound discrimination activities. Findings show that touch-based interaction facilitated faster response and improved accuracy over cursor-based input modalities. Moreover, usability evaluations suggest that Rannan can be an effective bridge between clinical-based therapy and home-based aural rehabilitation
