Audio Database of Children Communicating

In development: an audio database of children communicating. “During years of work, the researchers have recorded children and their parents interacting in different settings. In [Mark] VanDam’s case, he – or graduate students working for him – affixed small recording devices, about the size of a deck of cards, to young children and captured the sounds of them communicating with their parents and siblings for days. The grant will fund compilation of the database and software to manage it. ”
