Aided cortical response, speech intelligibility, consonant perception and functional performance of young children using conventional amplification or nonlinear frequency compression
ABSTRACT Objective: The aim of this study was to compare conventional processing with nonlinear frequency compression (NLFC) in hearing aids for young children with bilateral hearing loss. Methods: Sixty-four children ...
Impact of the presence of auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) on outcomes of children at three years of age
Objective—To determine the influence of the presence of auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) on speech, language, and psycho-social development of children at three years of age.
Language and speech perception of young children with bimodal fitting or bilateral cochlear implants
(Cochlear Implants International, 2014-05-01)
This paper compares language development and speech perception of children with bimodal fitting ( a cochlear implant in one ear and a hearing aid in the opposite ear) or bilateral cochlear implantation

Cortical auditory evoked potentials (CAEPs) reveal changes in audibility with nonlinear frequency compression in hearing aids for children: clinical implications
(Seminars in Hearing, Oct 2015)
Children with hearing loss are detected soon after birth via newborn hearing screening. Procedures for early hearing assessment and hearing aid fitting are well-established, but methods for evaluating the effectiveness of ...
Outcomes of 3-Year-Old Children With Hearing Loss and Different Types of Additional Disabilities
This research investigated the speech, language, and functional auditory outcomes of 119 3-year-old children with hearing loss and additional disabilities. Outcomes were evaluated using direct assessment and caregiver ...
Intelligibility of Speech Produced by Children with hearing loss
(Communication Disorders, Deaf Studies & Hearing Aids, 2015)
This study aimed to 1) investigate the influence of nonlinear frequency compression (NLFC) in hearing aids on intelligibility of speech produced by children with hearing loss; and 2) examine whether clinicians’ or parents’ ...
Detection rates of cortical auditory evoked potentials at different sensation levels in infants with sensory/ neural hearing loss and auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder
(Seminars in Hearing, 2015)
With the introduction of newborn hearing screening infants are being diagnosed with hearing loss during the first few months of life. For infants with a sensory/ neural hearing loss (SNHL) the audiogram can be estimated ...
