some people do!! (not Pete -- he's so steeped in it that the other day when I nearly laughed BBQ sauce out my nose he said, 'it's not my fault you can't get a proper seal on your velopharyngeal port')
This evening (during my 6-8:30pm class - blech) I have to turn in the study design of a research proposal. The clinical question I'm seeking to answer is:
Does "Aural Rehabilitation" in the form of perceptual auditory training with pre-lingually deaf adult cochlear implant users improve their speech recognition ability?
- I know I'll have to more clearly define 'improve' (will it be by test scores, quality of life, generalization to everyday tasks?) but it's a work in progress....
