Speech and Hearing
Picture Description

Hearing testing of a young child. In this instance, tangible reinforcement (e.g., raisins) is delivered into the Plexiglas tray whenever the child makes a correct response. Research studies like these being carried out at Northwestern University can lead to the early detection of hearing loss or to the development of better hearing aids.
