Seeds of language development: Development of hearing impaired infants’ speech perception and vocalisation over the first three years of life

This project investigates how infants with and without hearing loss develop early language skills from birth until 2 years of age.

We are interested in finding out how hearing loss affects the development of the ability to perceive language sounds, and how these effects can be medicated.
