I am interested in methods to assess perceptual, linguistic and cognitive development in pre-lingually deaf infants who use cochlear implants (CI). My research is aimed at understanding what impact hearing impairment has on early development and whether these measures obtained in infancy are predictive of later spoken-language abilities. I am also interested in cognitive sources of variance in spoken-language skills in pre-school and school-age children with CIs.
