Graduate Studies Program in Listening & Spoken Language for Children with Hearing Loss

Faculty Research

Faculty, staff, and students currently in the Graduate Studies Program in Auditory Learning and Spoken Language are engaged in a wide range of research that will ultimately aid children with hearing loss and their families. Given the recent changes within the field of deafness and associated disciplines, more research is required to fully investigate appropriate intervention strategies, speech and language outcomes, parental decision-making, the maximal use of hearing technology (i.e., assistive listening devices, digital hearing aids & cochlear implants), public policy, and evidence-based practices that govern clinical and educational services. These are but a few of the areas that are being studied by existing faculty, staff, and students.
