    Project Details

    Description

    This study aims to generate developmental norms on lexical tone dichotic listening (DL, the ability to recall acoustic stimuli with one stimulus presented to the right ear and another stimulus presented to the leaf ear simultaneously) profiles of the top-down instructional-driven and bottom-up stimulus-driven information processing capabilities of young Cantonese-speaking children. Those norms have a promising potential to identify children with language learning disorders; such potential has been confirmed in a pilot study.
