Adjunct Professor Rob Eikelboom is a co-author on new paper that reported a study on the role of teachers in supporting children with hearing loss, especially their mental well-being.

The study showed that while teachers know they have to play an important role, they require resources and professional development to enhance their understanding of how to support these children.
