DailyDirt: Baby Language Development

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Devices that can automatically interpret dogs and babies have been promising easy conversations with our loved ones who aren’t quite able to speak intelligibly. (There are even apps for it.) The reality, though, isn’t quite like the talking dogs in the movie Up. But maybe some day, if folks keep working on the technology for it…. Here are some projects that might help out.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Baby talk

On this subject; my wife, who has considerable experience with persons with disabilities, decided to try to teach our great-grandson how to sign (when he was six months).
It worked, and allowed us to see how his cognitive skills were developing well before he was one year old.
We assumed it would slow down speech development; since he knew how to express himself with sign language, but it didn’t. He is developing speech pretty much at the right age.
