Auditory processing research - participants needed for neuroimaging study
Participants are needed for our neuroimaging study to better understand Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) experienced by young school-aged children.
Auditory processing research
We are looking for children to participate in our neuroimaging study to investigate links between child’s hearing abilities and their brain organization. This will enable us to better understand Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) experienced by young school-aged children.
- Participation will require one or two visits depending on your availability, with a duration of two hours in total.
- Children will complete a hearing test assessment and an MRI scan to record brain activity.
- Participants (including parents) will be reimbursed $30 in vouchers to help with travel costs.
- aged between nine and thirteen years old
- who are native English speakers or fluent in English
- with no hearing difficulties
- or diagnosed with APD.
However, your child will be excluded if they have:
- any implants in their body
We would greatly appreciate it if you would allow your child to participate in our research. Please read the documents below and feel free to contact us for further information.
