Music For Babies

The following award-winning recordings include classical, folk music, and instrumental versions of lullabies and nursery rhymes that nurture the rapidly developing brains of children from birth to three.

Just as food nourishes a baby's growing body, the elements of music - melody, tone and harmony -nourish a baby's rapidly developing brain. Even before children are born, research shows that music has a beneficial effect on the network of neurons that will be the foundation of their later learning, language development and music ability.

By helping create a peaceful and loving home environment, These CDs help build stronger family relationships. Another great benefit is the strengthening of the parent-child bond. Today, we see countless Moms, Dads, young children and babies sitting together on the living room floor listening to these magical recordings.

Your Baby's Hearing

To learn easily and communicate effectively, your child needs to hear well. Hearing damage is the number one undiagnosed health issue in infants, and it can lead to language and learning disabilities. Providing children with a high-quality, audio-enriched environment can augment auditory development and help them have a lifetime of healthy hearing.

Ear infections and middle-ear fluid can damage a child's hearing and listening ability. Otitis Media is the most common ear infection in children. Make sure your child is not a victim of Otitis Media or other problems by having your child's hearing regularly checked by a medical professional.

Exposure to loud sounds ("toxic noise") is another threat to hearing health. It can be especially harmful during the early, developing years; even everyday sounds can damage the delicate auditory apparatus in very young children. Speech Pathology Associates encourages you to monitor your children's audio environment to promote their hearing health.
