Help us learn how babies' brains respond to speech sounds

We are inviting infants and children who are below 3 years of age and who have normal hearing and permanent hearing loss to participate in a research study evaluating brain responses to speech sounds. Outcomes from this study may contribute to more accurate hearing aid outcome measures in children with hearing loss.

The study will include routine hearing screening, and assessment of brain and behavioral responses to speech using age-appropriate listening tasks. Children can be asleep when brain responses are recorded and sessions can be scheduled at your convenience. Testing will take place in the National Centre for Audiology located in Western University campus and may last up to 2-3 hours. Families will be compensated for their time and parking passes will be offered.
