Research Study for 2nd Graders

 Study for 2nd graders

 What's that in your ear? Children's attitudes towards their peers with hearing aids

Participant Criteria
Typically developing children with normal hearing OR hearing loss (who wear hearing aids) are currently in the 2nd grade (6-7 years of age)

This study will look at how children perceive other children with disabilities. The information collected in this study will help us understand peer attitudes toward children with disabilities in the classroom, particularly hearing loss.

During your 1-hour visit at Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center, children will be asked to:
Look at photographs of children and answer some questions about the pictures along with answering some questions about their experiences with children with disabilities.
