Ljudskrapan

The project aims at investigating the methods for sound stimulation that are being used to help hearing impaired and deaf persons at an early stage of intellectual development. Further, new methods for allowing these individuals to explore the sound modality will be developed and tested. We will have a close cooperation with Åsbacka, a school for hearing impaired children.
