About the Developmental Speech Lab

The developmental speech research lab seeks to better understand the development of speech perception and language in typically developing children and those with hearing loss, and, based on this knowledge, design better approaches to intervention and remediation. This work is inherently multidisciplinary and we collaborate with colleagues across the University and the country. Our current research focuses on the role of family environment in spoken language and executive function outcomes in children with hearing loss, basic speech perception in toddlers believed to have a core deficit in phonological encoding, and children’s ability to cope with variability in speech – specifically variability due to nonnative accents.
