The Role of Sound in Child Development:
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
MindShift from KQED public radio is a treasure trove of good information about learning and education. Today’s post is an important essay on how the variety of sounds in our world contribute to child and adolescent development. Sounds of all kinds are part of the greater pattern of things that both help and hinder development in many ways. This essay shares the work of Dr. Nina Kraus and her colleagues at Northwestern’s Auditory Neuroscience Lab. Every parent and teacher needs to read and act on this.
“Certain types of sound can help a child develop her ability to learn. What’s not so great? An excess of meaningless sound, like white noise and noise pollution.”
