WHO WE ARE: 

The Listening and Learning Lab is a research lab in the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center comprised of research and clinical audiologists, speech-language pathologists, graduate students, and others interested in learning more about childhood hearing loss and its effect on listening and learning.

WHAT WE DO:

We seek to understand how hearing loss affects a child’s ability to be successful in school and in other areas of development.

MISSION:

The mission of the Listening and Learning Lab is to improve the emotional, social, and academic functioning of children and adolescents with hearing loss by:

  • Conducting original research that contributes new knowledge to the academic community regarding the audiologic characteristics and academic performance of children with hearing loss.
  • Bridging the gap between research in clinical and education settings to better serve the realistic needs of children, families, and educators.
  • Involving graduate students in the research process to inspire future researchers and assist in the training of audiologists, speech language pathologists, and deaf educators.
