Project description

The aims of this project are: (1) Development of an assessment protocol for the evaluation of motor development, balance and vestibular function of children. (2) Tracing systematically the mechanisms causing motor retardation and poor balance performance in auditory impaired children. (3) Investigating the consequences of a cochlear implantation on the motor development and the balance performance of auditory impaired children.
