Overview

This multi-site study was developed to evaluate performance of cochlear implant (CI) users with enhanced aural rehabilitation(AR) strategies via telehealth technology in a randomized controlled clinical study, maximizing both access to auditory information and improving functional communication outcomes for individuals with hearing loss. This research study will allow us to determine whether a short-term rehabilitation program for adult CI users will be as effective when rehabilitation training is provided over the internet as when it is provided face-to-face with a clinician.

This project is part of the research consortium under the RERC on Technology for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, under the direction of Dr. Christian Vogler and Linda Kozma-Spytek at Gallaudet University, with funding from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) (Grant # 90RE5020). See the project here on the RERC website.
