Assessing speech exposure in the NICU: Implications for speech enrichment for preterm infants
TLDR
Speech exposure during Developmental Care, especially with intentional voice exposure, may be an important source of stimulation in preterm infants and for infants in open cribs vs. incubators.
Vocalizations of minimally verbal children with autism spectrum disorder across the school year
TLDR
Vocalizations did not increase for eight of the nine participants, and conversational counts between participants and adults were near zero across the entire year, speaking to the need for additional research examining language development and potential intervention strategies among minimally verbal children with autism spectrum disorder.
Automated Vocal Analysis of Children With Hearing Loss and Their Typical and Atypical Peers
TLDR
Automatic acoustic analysis can now be used to quantitatively compare vocal development in children with and without speech-related disorders, although children with hearing loss show some delay in their production of speech.
Designing Virtual, Moderated Studies of Early Childhood Development
TLDR
Three separate moderated virtual behavioral assessments in children ranging from 4 to 13years of age that were highly successful are described, suggesting principles for future facilitation of online developmental work.
Everyday music in infancy
Abstract Infants enculturate to their soundscape over the first year of life, yet theories of how they do so rarely make contact with details about the sounds available in everyday life. Here, we
Fine-Grained Classroom Activity Detection from Audio with Neural Networks
TLDR
This manuscript proposes and evaluates deep fully connected, convolutional, and recurrent neural network architectures, comparing the performance of mel-filterbank, OpenSmile, and self-supervised acoustic features, and compares 9way classification performance with 5-way and 4-way simplifications of the task.
IS PARENT REPORT OF BILINGUAL CHILDREN'S LANGUAGE ENVIRONMENT AS VALID AS WE THINK?
Researchers have defined bilingual language proficiency and dominance in different ways for decades; however, to date there is no standard, systematic description used by the scientific community to
Listening to Mom in the NICU: effects of increased maternal speech exposure on language outcomes and white matter development in infants born very preterm
TLDR
A randomized controlled trial to establish the potential impact of increased maternal speech exposure on long-term language outcomes and white matter development in infants born very preterm and the findings may help to guide NICU clinical practice for promoting language and brain development.
Non-nutritive suck and voice onset time: Examining infant oromotor coordination
TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between infant vocalization and another early oromotor task, non-nutritive suck, indicates a relationship between the development of VOT and NNS in the first year of life.
