Kids 18m - 36m with Cochlear Implants needed for research study at UW Madison
Posted Mar 13 2012 12:00am
We've participated in a few Cochlear Implant research studies over the last four years. Every time has been a fabulous learning experience for us and for Lily. We've also felt a great deal of satisfaction in helping to advance the study of Cochlear Implants.
A new research opportunity for kids 18m to 36m with at least one Cochlear Implant is starting at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. This study looks at how toddlers with cochlear implants hear in noisy environments and localize sounds. We're in a similar study which we've blogged about before.
The researchers play games with the kids, take lots of breaks, give prizes (Lily took home 20 bouncy balls and her very first Barbie) and there is enough time to have a bit of fun in Madison. The researchers go to great lenghts to make it a wonderful experience for the whole family.
If you have any interest in particpating in this or similar research, I'd encourage you to contact the lab. Let us know if you have any questions.
