Callier Center for Communication Disorders

Hearing Assistive Technology Laboratory

Technology for persons with hearing loss is rapidly changing. New features are added that may not benefit all. Electroacoustic evaluations are performed to verify the advanced features, and then behavioral evaluations are conducted to determine the most appropriate candidates for these features.
