At the UT Care Lab, we have a team of dedicated researchers who are developing scientifically rigorous tools and methods to improve speech understanding for children with clinically normal audiograms. By integrating expertise from audiology, engineering, and neuroscience, we advance our understanding of speech perception mechanisms and enhance communication management in noise. By utilizing advanced signal processing and acoustics techniques, we create intuitive tools to improve speech intelligibility and mitigate background noise effects. We also use demographic variables and psychoacoustic assessments to predict speech perception in noise among pediatrics. Our goal, through rigorous experimentation and data analysis, is to empower children with otherwise clinically normal hearing by providing evidence-based tools that optimize their ability to understand speech in challenging listening conditions.
