BiographyContactKeywordsAssociated Projects


My area of research is pediatric amplification, with interests in electroacoustic evaluation of signal processing, prescription, and outcome measurement. Our CLLRNet-funded projects help us to compute more accurate hearing aid prescriptions for infants and toddlers. My recent laboratory research has evaluated the relationship between objective hearing aid measurements and children\\\\\\\'s speech recognition using a standardized index. Both of these lines of research help our laboratory to interact with the clinical community regarding best practices for fitting hearing aids to infants, toddlers, and school-aged children. For example, the Ontario Inf ant Hearing Program recently entered a formal collaboration with our lab to develop and maintain evidence-based hearing aid fitting protocols. My role in this project is to ensure accurate electroacoustic verifications.

The language and culture of my heritage is passed on to me orally. it's a different way off learning than how I am taught at school. How do I keep my traditional culture alive while learning to read and being immersed in the majority culture?

Reading is the core of learning and staying in school . improving reading skills with young Aboriginal children can open up the doors to future prospects.
