Training in adult cochlear iimpant users

  1. 1. Training in adult cochlear implant users Mariana Reis1,2, Isabelle Boisvert1,2, Catherine McMahon1,2 1Macquarie University, 2The HEARing Cooperative Research Centre Abstract This study investigates the effectiveness of auditory training for adult cochlear implant users and the factors underlying auditory learning. Background o Small changes in CI users’ speech perception following auditory training. o Factors underlying auditory learning are not well established. o Low to medium quality evidence cannot guide practice. Survey on variability in clinical practice Research question Does verbal-based training lead to greater changes in listening abilities of adult cochlear implant users when presented in the auditory mode compared to the visual mode? Methods Cross-over design Training programs Degraded information Adaptive training; 5 days/week; 20min/day. Outcome measures o Auditory abilities o Cognitive and executive functions o Physiological correlates of change (ERP, oscillations, pupillometry)  based on XR1.1.3 o Self-perceived performance (including well- being and quality of life) Implications A better understanding of the benefits of different aspects of auditory training will support evidence-based practices.
