Personal profile

Chinese Name : 袁志彬

Variants : Yuen, K. C. P.

Dr. Kevin YUEN Chi Pun is an Associate Professor at the Department of Special Education and Counselling, The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK). He is also the Director of Integrated Centre for Wellbeing (I-WELL), Faculty of Education & Human Development, EdUHK.

Dr. Yuen has dual professional qualifications as an audiologist and a speech-language pathologist (or speech therapist). He is also an expereinced cochlear implant clinical specialist audiologist.

Dr. Yuen received his undergraduate degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences and master’s degree in Audiology from The University of Hong Kong, and Doctor of Philosophy degree from the Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Dr. Yuen has a strong research interest in sound perception and speech recognition of children with normal hearing and children with deafness and hard-of-hearing (DHH) in both quiet and noise environments. He investigated the contribution of frequency-specific temporal envelope and periodicity components (without any fine structure components) for lexical tone recognition in normal hearing and DHH listeners. Dr. Yuen developed the Cantonese Lexical Neighborhood Test, the Computerized Cantonese Disyllabic-word Lexical Tone Identification Test in Noise, and the Computerized Mandarin Pediatric Lexical tone & Disyllabic-word Picture identification test in Noise to serve the Cantonese- and Mandarin- speaking populations in Hong Kong and Mainland China.

One of Dr Yuen'e new research areas is to identify and remediate young individuals in the Chinese communities with Auditory Processing Disorders (APD) and to investigate the impact of APD on speech and language development, learning. The latest innovative test developlment from his researh team is The Cantonese Pediatric Lexical Tone Dichotic Listening Test (CaPeLeTo DLT) which was developed for the identification of young children wiht APD.
