Highly specialized research laboratory – sensory/language

The REA Foundation is funding the creation of a highly specialized research laboratory at the Raymond Dewar Institute for the rehabilitation of people who are deaf, deaf-blind, have a language disorder or an auditory processing disorder.

Nearly 1,500 children, 400 teenagers and 2,700 adults with hearing loss, hearing processing disorders, deafblindness or language disorders are currently users at the Raymond-Dewar Institute.

The acquisition of proven technologies, Neuroscan and Eyelink II, will make it possible to measure changes in brain activity during listening exercises or visual stimulation. The laboratory will thus be able to customize rehabilitation services to the needs of targeted clienteles, evaluate the added value of interventions and adjust the clinical support offered.

Project amount: 110 000$
