Parents of children with hearing loss often struggle with hearing loss diagnosis and effective daily management. This difficulty can interfere with timely diagnosis of hearing loss and consistent implementation of appropriate intervention strategies. If left unattended, challenges can negatively impact child developmental outcomes, and later academic success. The mission of the Listening and Spoken Language lab is to increase our understanding of parent and professional factors that facilitate/interfere with outcomes for children who are deaf or hard of hearing learning to communicate using spoken language.
