We are currently looking for subjects in four groups:
- 1. We are currently looking for children to participate in a listening study, who are 5 to 7 years of age, and who had ear tubes placed before the age of 4 due to ear infections. This study takes two sessions of about one hour each and involves listening tasks, picture games, and word games. Children receive a T-shirt and small toys or candy, and parents are reimbursed for their time and will receive a parking voucher.
- 2. We are currently looking for children who are 4 to 6 years of age and use cochlear implants or hearing aids, or who have normal hearing (no special devices to help with hearing) to participate in a listening study. This study takes about one hour and involves listening tasks and a picture game. Parents are reimbursed for their time and will receive a parking voucher.
- 3. The Speech Development Laboratory at the University of Florida is looking for children (3-12 years of age) to participate in our research studies. We need both children with normal speech, language, and hearing, and children with hearing, language, or reading problems to participate in our research studies. Studies involve one to two visits of about one hour each. During these visits children perform simple listening tasks set up as games. Most children find the games fun and interesting. Children receive a T-shirt and small toys or candy, and parents are reimbursed for their time and will receive a parking voucher.
- 4. We are also looking for adults between the ages of 18 and 40 to participate in research studies. Adults who participate typically come to the lab for one to two visits. Each visit takes about one hour. Adults are reimbursed for their time with cash or one unit of extra credit per visit.
The information gained in the Speech Development Lab helps guide the design of programs for children with speech, language, or hearing problems. This is a great opportunity for children and adults to have some fun and help others too!
