Hearing Impairment Studies

Toddler Study - Cochlear Implants


Spatial hearing, or sound localization, refers to our ability to determine where sounds originate in our environment. In the Binaural Hearing and Speech Lab (PI: Ruth Litovsky), we are studying the development of spatial hearing in young children who use cochlear implants. We are currently recruiting children under the age of 3 years who use unilateral or bilateral cochlear implants to participate in our studies. Children should have a history of severe-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss bilaterally at birth or within the first few months of life, be native English speakers, and have at least 6 months of experience with their device.

To determine if your child is eligible for this study, or if you would like more information, please contact Shelly Godar at godar@waisman.wisc.edu or call 608.262.7483.
