Ph.D Student – Comm4Child Project ESR13: spelling ability and associated skills

 

The aim of this longitudinal project is to examine how the quality of orthographic representations in children with hearing impairment are related to biological factors (deafness, recovered auditory skills through cochlear implant or hearing aids), language abilities, vocabulary in oral and/or in sign language, and to exposure to print (reading ability), and to short-term memory for serial order. This study will provide a quantitative normative description of the various spelling patterns of children with hearing impairment in relation to predictive factors: such as age of implantation, duration of implant use, communication modes and practice, unilateral vs. bilateral implantation, language scores. Furthermore, the work will investigate possible directions for enhancing the quality of orthographic representations in children with hearing impairment.
