Reading outcomes in children with hearing loss: An investigation into the predictors and nature of reading difficulties

Reading outcomes in children with hearing loss: An investigation into the predictors and nature of reading difficulties

In this longitudinal study we look at over 100 children with hearing loss at two time points (ages 5 and 9 years) and ask:

  • What factors (e.g., auditory, linguistic, demographic) at age 5 predict reading abilities at 9 years of age in this population?
  •  What patterns of poor reading are most common in this population?

Findings will inform the development of literacy training programs specifically tailored for children with hearing loss.
