Project description
Literature suggests that a lack of auditory stimulation at an early age, could provide a delay or disorder in domain-general sequencing skills, which may affect cognitive abilities related to learning, recalling, and producing sequential information. 

The general purpose of my project is to investigate linguistic information processing in children with deafness. It consists of two main phases: a basic research and an applicative training-phase. I aim to deepen the current theoretical knowledge of Sequence Learning and Working Memory processes, and examine how these abilities relate to the linguistic outcomes of deaf children. The proficiency obtained by this research will contribute to the development of a serious-game, that will serve as a training. Hopefully, this could represent an innovative starting point for new therapies addressed to all those children who are showing difficulties in sequence processing, such as children with deafness or learning disabilities.
