Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Language development relies on early auditory exposure, both in utero and the first year of life. During this time, infants undergo vast structural and sensory development, while experiencing sensory inputs that impact the auditory system. This presentation will outline the progression of auditory development and impact of early exposures. Findings from a recent study that quantified types of auditory exposures across infant environments and potential clinical implications will be discussed.
