Language acquisition during the early years controls one’s abilities in communication needs, statements and the expression of emotions. People with profound hearing impairment have behavioral problems with their hearing. The impact of self-regulation as an objective way is shown in children with hearing impairment. The aim of this study is to predict the behavior problems of children with cochlear implants, based on language development, secure attachment and the mediating role of self-regulation. For this purpose in a descriptive study, correlational type, 114 children aged 3-7 years, who had cochlear implants for at least one year were selected from available samples. They were examined in terms of language development, attachment, and self-regulation and behavior problems in preschool children. The results of the path analysis indicated that secure attachment and language development predicts variance of self-regulation. Also language development and secure attachment predicts 52.0 of behavioral problems variance with the mediating role of self-regulation. The results of the study supports predicting behavioral problems in children with cochlear implant based on language development and secure attachment with the mediating role of self-regulation. It seems that this relationship can be considered in reduction of behavioral problems, prevention programs and rehabilitation.
