"Sing for me mama: Musical interactions and their impact on language and socio-emotional development"
Music is a powerful means that has the potential to support mental health, improve socio-emotional functioning and promote cognitive development. Infants and young children show spontaneous enjoyment for music and remarkable ability to perceive and engage with it. Dr. Polytimou will present some of the mechanisms that explain how musical interactions can promote language and socio-emotional development. Dr. Polytimou will also present work showing associations between musical engagement and developmental outcomes for children.
