The Cochlear Implant Communication Lab (CICL) conducts research exploring the development of spoken language perception and production abilities by children with cochlear implants. Our work examines children's ability to produce and perceive specific sound contrasts of English (such as the difference between 'p' in the word pat, and 'b' in the word bat), and the production and perception of intonation, rhythm and other characteristics of speech that enhance communication effectiveness. Activities in the lab are supported by NIDRR (US Department of Education), the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, and The Department of Speech and Hearing Science at George Washington University.
