Research Opportunity for infants under 14 months old who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing – Northwestern . . . .

The Early Intervention Research Group (EIRG) is looking for families who are interested in participating in a research study for infants with hearing loss! EIRG is a research group at Northwestern University that studies parent-implemented interventions for children with various language delays. They are recruiting children younger than 14 months old, with hearing loss in both ears who wear a hearing device or who are candidates for a hearing device. English must be the primary language spoken in the home and one parent with typical hearing levels must be willing to participate. All families will receive language assessments, reports about their child’s development, language strategies to use with their child, and compensation for their time.

Half of the families participating will also receive additional language therapy in their home.

Contact EIRG to see if you are eligible to participate in their study

Parent/Child Survey – Vanderbilt Fatigue Scale for Children with Hearing Loss (children age 11-17) …..

Sharing: The Listening and Learning Lab at Vanderbilt is currently developing a questionnaire to identify children struggling with listening-related fatigue. We invite parents of children with or without hearing loss (age 6-17) and children with or without hearing loss (age 11-17) to fill out a brief online survey about listening fatigue. If both parent and child will participate, they must complete the questionnaire at the same time. Participants will be entered into a drawing for a $200 gift card.
