Vocal Exploration and Interaction in the Emergence of Speech

This project is a longitudinal and microgenetic evaluation of early human vocalizations as a foundation for speech, within an evolutionarily-informed, dynamic systems framework.  Data include computer-interactive diaries from caregivers, extensive laboratory recordings, and all-day recordings in the home. Automated analyses based on laboratory data will be applied to home recordings to help reveal early interactive bases for communicative development, and the results will be assessed against outcome patterns seen in extant home recording based data from children with autism and language delay.
