Vanderbilt: New database to help children who are deaf or hard of hearing

Vanderbilt: New database to help children who are deaf or hard of hearing. “The multi-center study, called LSL-DR for Listening and Spoken Language Data Repository, is overseen by Tamala Bradham, DHA, PhD, a quality and safety adviser in VUMC’s Center for Quality, Safety and Risk Prevention. Educators, hearing healthcare providers and researchers will be able to use the database to assess educational, speech and language outcomes in children who are deaf or hard of hearing, with the goal of having comparable speech and language skills as their typical-hearing peers, she said.”
