Dr. Reesman's research involves the understanding of brain-behavior relationships in children who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, or affected by hearing loss and in examination of assessment tools that are accessible to this population. She is currently developing studies to examine the accessibility of various computer-based tests as a means of assessment for children with hearing loss. Dr. Reesman is developing a project to examine interventions for improving working memory in children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
Dr. Reesman is also interested in examining the trajectory of recovery from mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI/concussion), with particular emphasis on recovery in preschool children and in examining features of individuals whose may be slow to recover from this injury.
