Children Speech, Language, Hearing Development

19 Sep

It is important to remember that not every child is the same, and children reach milestones at different ages.
Hearing problems may be suspected in children who are not responding to sounds or who are not developing their language skills appropriately. The following are some age-related guidelines that may help to decide if your child is experiencing hearing problems.

Signs of Problems in Speech, Language, Hearing Development

However, hearing loss can lead to delays in your child’s ability to make sounds, learn to speak, and communicate. Consult your child’s physician if you’re concerned about your child’s hearing or speech, or if you notice any of the following:
• No response to sound at any age

•Infant doesn’t move or jump when a loud sound is made

•No babbling by the time the infant is 9 months old

•No words spoken by age 18 to 24 months

•Doesn’t follow simple commands by age 2

•Poor voice quality at any age

Learning second language – learning age change brain shape

18 Sep

Results show that learning a second language after gaining proficiency in the first language modifies brain structure in an age-dependent manner whereas simultaneous acquisition of two languages has no additional effect on brain development.

•Learning two languages from birth has no effect on cortical thickness compared to learning only one language.
•In the bilingual brain, the later a second language is acquired the greater the effect on cortical thickness.
•In the left inferior frontal gyrus, cortical thickness increases with age of acquisition of second language.
•In the right inferior frontal gyrus, cortical thickness decreases with age of acquisition of second language.

In neuroanatomy, cortical thickness is a brain morphometric measure used to describe the combined thickness of the layers of the cerebral cortex in mammalian brains, either in local terms or as a global average for the entire brain. Given that cortical thickness roughly correlates with the number of neurons within an ontogenetic column, it is often taken as indicative of the cognitive abilities of an individual, albeit the latter are known to have multiple determinants.
