Innovation In Infant Auditory Rehabilitation

This project is developed at SUVAG hearing health service, a 100% SUS institution that serves the population of the entire state of RN. Given the devastating impact of childhood hearing impairment, scientifically and clinically, proposals that optimize children’s outcomes and that could be scalable are desirable. Performed through a series of clinical studies, its main objectives are: to analyze the effectiveness of innovation (specific interventions mediated by technology and / or reorganization of procedures) in child hearing (re) habilitation, to evaluate the knowledge and skills of family members, speech therapists/audiologists and teachers who work with these children, before and after education mediated by technology and active methodologies, in order to produce knowledge that can be used to improve the hearing (re) habilitation services offered to the population, reducing costs for the SUS.
