Between April 28 and May 8, Carolien and Boya visited our Chinese collaborators at Peking University, Capital Normal University and China Rehabilitation Research Center for Hearing and Speech Impairment (see poster on the right; click to enlarge), all located in Beijing. At these three institutions, Carolien presented the latest developments regarding our research on children with autism and hearing loss. The visits sparked interesting discussions and promoted long-term collaborations. Tours around the three centers showed a warm atmosphere and true concern for children’s social-emotional wellbeing and development. The exciting collaborations with these institutions allow us to conduct large-scale cross-cultural studies, providing us with valuable insights into social-emotional functioning in children with (a)typical development.
