Study Details

How do children listen in complicated auditory environments?

(IRB#: IRB_00126429)

Children have more difficulty listening in complex environments like a classroom than adults. Children with hearing loss experience even more difficulty than children without hearing loss. Scientists and doctors do not fully understand the characteristics of the environment and the listener that makes listening difficult. Research is needed to design better methods that improve the health of people with listening challenges in complex environments.
