Congenital muteness and speech perception skills

Dear List Members,

I've been trawling over the existing literature on auditory (sensory) versus motor theories of speech perception, and have surprisingly not seen very much in the way of studies on the effect of congenital muteness but preserved hearing and the development of speech perception skills.  This seems a good test of the validity of the motor theory to my mind.  I would be most grateful to any pointers of relevant studies conducted that I may have missed.

Many thanks in advance.
