Noise and Language Learning

Just as an older person with hearing loss might have trouble making out voices at a party, background noise can interfere with an infant’s ability to learn language. Researchers have found that infants learn best when they can see the face of the person speaking to them.

Since constant noise, such as TV in the background, can distract them and slow their learning, minimize that noise and make sure your baby can see your face as you talk.
