New study shows toddlers are great at getting the conversation started

Conversation is an important part of what makes us human. Previous research has shown that children begin to develop this skill at a young age. While many assume that mothers instigate communication with their children, new research suggests that children are the ones who get the conversation started. ‘I was surprised that kids were drivers of conversation,’ said Mark VanDam, who will present his team’s research findings at the 177th ASA Meeting, May 13-17, 2019.
