Teenagers with bilateral cochlear implants (CI) often suffer from poor spatial hearing abilities; a set of multi-modal (audio-visual) and multi-domain training tasks (localisation, spatial speech-in-noise and spatial music) was designed by involving teenage CI users as co-creators during the development process.
