The researchers involved in the NWO VIDI project on 'Morphosyntactic Development in Children with a Cochlear Implant' at Leiden University and the Consortium of the FP7-SME1-222291 project 'DUAL PRO' will be organizing a one-day workshop entitled
'Beyond Hearing: Current Investigations in Listening and Language Skills of Cochlear Implant Users'
The workshop has two parallel sessions. The first session concentrates on the language development in cochlear-implanted children, in comparison with hearing impaired children with classical hearing aids and specific language impairment. The second session concentrates on the electric-acoustic speech processing and assessment tools for residual low-frequency hearing in deaf CI users. Both sessions are followed by a presentation of the newly developed prosodic module of the Auditory Speech Sound Evaluation (ASSE) aiming to assess prosody perception in hearing impaired.
Anyone who is interested in attending the workshop is cordially invited to do so.
