A new article in The ASHA Leader
spotlights ideas for intervention
coming from EDCHL!
After the Implant
Susan Nittrouer is currently a professor and director of research
in the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery
at Ohio State University Medical Center. She directs two grants
from the National Institute on Deafness and Other
The Ontogeny of Segmental Speech Organization ( OSSO)
Early Development of Children with Hearing Loss ( EDCHL)
Her research interests focus on:
How children acquire the abilities to recognize the
phonetic-level structure of their native language and
to produce speech with the gestural organization
typical of their native language;
What role the ability to recognize that structure
plays in language processing;
What conditions of childhood support the
ontogeny of these skills;
Precisely how perceptual processing of the speech
signal is affected by deleterious conditions such as
poverty, frequent otitis media with effusion, and
sensorineural hearing loss.
