Susan Small

Susan Small is the Hamber Professor of Clinical Audiology and Director of the Pediatric Audiology Laboratory at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Small is also a clinical audiologist with experience working with patients of all ages. Research in the Pediatric Audiology Laboratory focusses on maturation of hearing through investigations of peripheral and central auditory processing in infancy and early childhood. One of her research areas is the early diagnosis of hearing loss using brainstem auditory evoked potentials. She is also interested in the clinical application of objective measures such as cortical auditory-evoked potentials to investigate speech detectability and discrimination in infants with sensory and neural hearing losses.
