From prelinguistic communication to word use in typically hearing and deaf infants
May 21 @ 12:00 - 13:00
Danielle Matthews (Department of psychology, The University of Sheffield)
Around the end of the first year infants make the transition from prelinguistic communication (babble, gesture, eye contact) to word use. I will present a series of studies that have 1) measured individual differences that predict this transition 2) tested experimentally if it is possible to promote learning and 3) compared deaf and hearing infants. Together these studies reveal the important role of the social environment in learning to talk.
