Dr. Caudle's research interests focus on the cognitive, psychosocial, adaptive, and educational outcomes for children who experience prelingual deafness and are candidates/recipients of cochlear implants. She is currently conducting research examining the functioning of children pre- and post-implantation, and plans to investigate mediating factors such as etiology of the hearing loss, birth factors, outcomes for children with genetic syndromes, and outcomes for children with multiple handicaps. Dr. Caudle also serves as a Co-Investigator for several grants pertaining to cognitive outcome in liver disease and is particularly interested in the outcome for children diagnosed very early in life.
