Doctoral students requesting participants for hearing research

A doctoral student in communication sciences and disorders is conducting a study comparing an existing and a newly developed clinical technique for evaluating the function of the middle ear. Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 35, have normal hearing, have not had an ear infection in the past three months, nor had a cold or flu in the past two weeks.

Participants will receive a no-cost comprehensive hearing evaluation and ear examination before testing. The testing will last approximately one hour at Hubbard Hall (Room 106). The staff has implemented a virus protection plan following Wichita State Institutional Review Board guidelines.
