520    Current speech perception methodologies for young children
       are limited to those that require behavioral and 
       metacognitive responses from the participant. The visual 
       habituation paradigm (VHP) is a procedure that uses 
       novelty preference (measured by a child's looking time) to
       illustrate perception of novel auditory stimuli. The 
       purpose of the current study was to determine whether a 
       variant of the hybrid visual habituation paradigm (HVHP) 
       could be used to measure individual differences in the 
       perception of a of prosodic and segmental speech features 
       in a group of deaf children with cochlear implants. 
       Participants were assessed on the perception of three 
       speech features (vowel height, lexical stress, intonation)
       using a modified HVHP. Analyses showed that all of the 
       participants exhibited longer looking times to the novel 
       auditory stimuli during the experimental trial. Additional
       analyses illustrated that the modified HVHP is a promising
       method for assessing the perception of vowel height, 
       lexical stress and intonation in young children with 
       cochlear implants
