‘Understanding how babies and toddlers listen’ study – Volunteers sought

Posted in News

Hannah Cooper, UCL Ear Institute, is seeking volunteers for a new study ‘Understanding how babies and toddlers listen’ study.

“We are looking for volunteers to take part in a project funded by the National Deaf Children’s Society about how deaf and hearing babies access the sounds around them. In order to find out more about how babies and toddlers learn about sounds in their environment we have developed a series of short questionnaires (about 5 minutes each) for parents to fill in. We are looking for parents of babies and toddlers (deaf or hearing) aged 3 to 18 months to tell us about their everyday interactions with their child in different situations.

We want to understand whether families with deaf babies do things differently to families with hearing babies. We will use this information to look at how best to use remote microphone technology so that deaf babies get the best possible sound experience.
