Research

Logo Nov 2013 RegisteredWe have joint-funded The Ear Foundation’s research project ‘A new look at literacy in Deaf Children with cochlear implants.’

The project collected results from children aged 9-16 years who wear cochlear implants, and compared their reading and writing levels to those of hearing children of the same age.

The research helped identify the factors that affect literacy performance among cochlear-implanted children, and will be used to plan literacy programmes for deaf children.

We have also paid for the research report to be made available in print format.
