Title: Communication Outcomes Research Project
Primary Track: 8-Information Dissemination and Marketing


The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (AG Bell) recently completed its Communication Outcomes Research Project (CORP), generously funded by the Dextra Baldwin McGonagle Foundation. Graduate students from George Washington University identified and analyzed over two hundred articles related to hearing loss. Available on AG Bell’s web site, www.agbell.org, the articles are categorized by title, author, keyword and populations included in the various research studies. Brief abstracts of each article are written in text that is understandable for the non-professional. A glossary of terms is provided to assist readers in their comprehension. The completion of CORP provides families and professionals with evidence-based information as they explore strategies and communication methods to achieve successful spoken language development for children with hearing loss. This poster will describe CORP and inform attendees about this valuable resource for families and EHDI providers.
