UWM Study: Children Who Learn to Talk While in Childcare

Jon Strelecki

  For a parent, one of the most amazing milestones to occur in their child's development is the ability to speak. It is an aspect of the human condition that continues to intrigue researchers around the world... especially those looking at some of the problems that can occur in language development. At UW-Milwaukee, a team of scientists are studying the large number of infants and toddlers who are in childcare centers when they begin to talk. On this edition of UWM Today, we meet Paula Rhyner, Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders in the College of Health Sciences.
