Rachel Wayne

PSYCHOLOGIST & EDUCATOR

Queen's Graduate Student | Clinical Psychology

Rachel Wayne is a PhD candidate in the Clinical Psychology program at Queen’s University. She is hard-of-hearing since birth and relies largely on lip-reading for communication. Rachel’s research focuses on understanding ways in which we use environmental cues, context, and lip-reading to support conversational speech, particularly in noisy environments. The goal of this research is to provide a foundational basis for empirically supported rehabilitative programs for hearing-impaired individuals.  Rachel is passionate about raising awareness about what it’s like to live with hearing loss in order to facilitate education about communicative strategies for hearing impairment.
