BRIEF BIO Dr. Susan Scollie is an Associate Professor at the National Centre for Audiology at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada. Together with colleagues, she participates in the development DSL Method for hearing aid fitting, and leads the Child Amplification Laboratory Team. The Child Amp Lab works closely with Ontario’s Ministry of Children and Youth Services to develop, implement, and evaluate evidence-based protocols for the Ontario Infant Hearing Program. Recent research studies in the Child Amp Lab have included the development of fitting methods for frequency compression, evaluation of outcomes with frequency compression and noise programs, and the development of both universal outcome measures protocols for the 0 – 6 age range as well as targeted outcome measures protocols aimed at high frequency hearing aid signal processing. Current research studies are focused on the use of aided evoked potentials as outcome measures, outcomes of early intervention, and the fitting of noise management programs for children who use hearing aids. Dr. Scollie has collaborated with colleagues at the National Centre for Audiology in developing the Translational Research Unit, a new laboratory that partners with industry to evaluate new products and procedures.
