Personal profile


Teresa Y.C. Ching's research is dedicated to improving the lives and outcomes of deaf or hard of hearing children. The end goal is community-based strategies that effectively manage childhood hearing loss and associated conditions to reduce their impact on language, literacy, educational attainment, mental health, and quality of life.

My research focuses on investigating the effectiveness of early detection and intervention for populations of children who are deaf or hard of hearing, identifying factors affecting longitudinal outcomes to target intervention; devising and validating novel objective EEG and subjective behavioural methods for assessing sound discrimination ability in children and adults who are deaf or hard of hearing; developing and evaluating methods for prescribing hearing aids and electric-acoustic stimulation (combining cochlear implants with hearing aids) for children and adults; and exploring perspectives of professionals and families to inform family-centred intervention. Recently, I have also developed and validated clinical tools for early detection of hearing and language problems in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in Australia.  

Professor Teresa Ching is Professorial Fellow at NextSense Institute (a centre for research and professional education operated by NextSense in affiliation with Macquarie University), and conjointly Professor of Education and Disability Studies in Macquarie School of Education.
