Recent Research: Infant Brain Development & Language Development

Two research studies presented at the 2022 International Society for Autism suggest that differences in infant brain structure may foretell atypical language development and skills. "Autistic children younger than two years have brain structure differences that predict atypical language development, according to two new imaging studies."

In another study, researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas tracked the changes in the brain's surface area and the cortical thickness in 78 brain regions for the first two years of life. Their findings supported the need for further research about how brain development in many regions of the brain affects language development.
