When children are surrounded by language, stories, songs and sounds they are beginning to make connections to the structure of language and how we communicate. The different words and language they hear forms the foundation of oral language.
As your baby listens to you they will be learning to identify where sounds are coming from and to respond to the different sounds they hear. As your baby’s hearing develops they will begin to hear different tones and pitches. Identifying different sounds, pitch and tone helps us to understand how the other person is feeling and the importance of the message.
