T•A•C•I•T - Therapy After Cochlear Implants Using Telemedicine 12-1103
This research plans to learn more about the use of telemedicine as a means of providing therapy to children who have a cochlear implant(s). While Auditory-Verbal Therapy has typically been delivered in person, many people are starting to access therapy over the internet. We are conducting this research to determine if the outcomes of therapy are the same when AVT is delivered in person and via telemedicine.
The TA•C•I•T team is looking for children ages 6 mos.-6 yrs. old who were implanted with cochlear implant(s) before age  3 ½..  Each child will spend nine months in both the in-person and telemedicine condition. The therapist will remain the same throughout the study. Total participation will last 18 months. The child will be tested three times: once when the study starts, and every nine months after that. A qualified study team member will administer speech, listening, and language tests to the child. They will also receive tests to identify how well their auditory area of the brain is developing.
