Hearing and Language
In this category, you will find analyses about hearing and language abilities of children and teenagers with HIV infection or HIV-exposure over time. We are interested in how these abilities change and develop over time, whether the children meet age expectations for language acquisition, and what role a child’s environment can play in helping or slowing hearing and language acquisition after HIV-exposure or infection.
Hearing Loss in Youth with HIV and HIV Exposure
In this study, we gave hearing tests to infected and uninfected youth born to mothers with HIV. We examined these tests to find out if infected youth had more hearing problems on average than uninfected youth. We also looked at what factors were related to hearing loss.
