Validating techniques for collecting measures of vocal and listening effort during remote and in-person speech-language intervention, IRB#22.0568
Telepractice is a growing service model that delivers aural rehabilitation services to deaf and hard-of-hearing children at a distance via telecommunications technology. Despite known benefits of telepractice this delivery approach introduces new challenges to the provider-pediatric patient interaction by altering the availability and the quality of the auditory, visual and tactile information. Such challenges may increase a child’s vocal and listening effort, affecting functional outcomes derived from audiological rehabilitation services. The proposed project will validate techniques for collecting measures of vocal and listening effort in deaf and hard-of-hearing children during remote and in-person speech-language intervention.
