Speech Laboratory

Two main lines of investigation are currently underway in the Speech Laboratory.

The first one explores the effects of auditory feedback deprivation on vowels, consonants and prosodic aspects of speech production in children and adults with cochlear implants. The second line of investigation concerns sensory processing disorder (SPD) in children with hearing loss.
