Implants and ASL study

The first study looking at how ASL helps cochlear implants recipients gets underway in December at RIT’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf. Funded by more than $2 million grant of federal money, researchers will take four years to test students who have implants and those who don't regarding how they perform in class, the quality of relationships, and their ability to problem solve. The main focus is how well the students who have implants and use ASL are doing compared to those without implants and students who are hearing.
