Welcome to The Hearing Experience and Language Learning Outcomes Lab!


UConn's HELLO Lab is dedicated to exploring one of the most fundamental aspects of life, language.

Guided by Dr. Derek Houston, the lab is dedicated to learning more about factors that impact spoken language learning, specifically in children who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Our Mission

The mission of The HELLO Lab is to bridge the gap between science and practical applications, with a particular focus on children who are deaf or hard of hearing.

We are passionate about exploring how early auditory experiences and parent-child interactions shape the foundation of spoken language learning, thereby opening new avenues for effective interventions and support. 

By collaborating with educators, parents, and communities, we aspire to bring about positive changes in language learning opportunities and outcomes for all children.
