Hearing and Language Lab
at Northwestern University
The Hearing and Language Lab (HLL) at Northwestern University investigates how our experience with sound affects our ability to understand and learn language. We are especially interested in how auditory experience contributes to language development in children, specifically those with hearing loss.

Research Spotlight: Au.D. Capstone Projects
The Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) students recently presented the findings from their yearlong capstone projects at the departmental Au.D. Research Symposium! Katie (left) shared her findings concerning children's ability to learn novel words in noise. Brigid (center) presented her research on how noise impacts child word learning. Kirsten (right) presented her project regarding the acoustic cues children use to segregate streams of speech in complex acoustic environments, such as a classroom.
Great job on your capstones and best of luck in your externships!
Lots of Fun at the End-of-the-Year Cookout!
This spring, we held our annual end-of-the-year picnic hosted by Dr. Grieco-Calub! The lab had a great time celebrating all of our hard work throughout the year with delicious food and fun games. We hope everyone has a great summer!
Ph.D./Au.D. student, Kristi Ward, was awarded an NRSA F31 predoctoral fellowship through the National Institutes of Health! This award will provide funding for her dissertation research project, “Auditory Selective Attention and its Relation to Speech Recognition in School-Age Children”. If your child is interested in participating in this exciting research opportunity please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 847-467-4156 for more information.
