Real-World Listening for Children Who Wear Hearing Aids

Real-World Listening for Children Who Wear Hearing Aids

Researchers at the UW Bloedel Hearing Research Center want to learn about how the brain helps us listen in noisy real-world environments. This study is for 4 to 18-year-old children and parents.

If you decide to participate in this research study, you and your child would come to the lab for a 4 hour study. During the study, we will do a one-hour EEG recording while you are listening to speech and tones, a hearing screening, cognitive assessments, and a parent questionnaire that can be completed online at home.

Children ages 4-7 have the option for an online study session that will last 1-2 hours via Zoom.

Children ages 7-18 have the option for the in-person study session that lasts 4-hours.

Participants will be compensated $15 per hour and parking reimbursement.

Participant Eligibility

This study might be a good fit for you if:
Your child is between 4 and 18 years old
We are looking for children who wear hearing aids as well as those who do not.
