Adults needed for research on children's hearing

The Children’s Auditory Perception Laboratory is currently recruiting adults between 18 and 30 years old for a research study to help us learn more about how children hear.

During the testing, you will sit in a sound-treated room and will listen to sounds presented over a speaker or through headphones. You will be asked to indicate when you hear sounds by selecting a picture on a computer monitor, raising your hand or repeating speech. The sounds we use are not loud.

One visit to the laboratory is required. The visit lasts one hour. You will receive $10 per hour.

If you are interested please email childhear@colorado.edu or call 303-735-6252. The principal investigator for this research study is Angela Yarnell Bonino, PhD, Department Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. All testing will be completed in the Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) Building on Main Campus.
