Developmental and postural changes in children’s visual access to faces
The faces of other people are a critical information source for young children. During early development, children undergo significant postural and locomotor development, changing from lying and sitting infants to toddlers who walk independently. We used a head-mounted camera in conjunction with a face-detection system to explore the effects of these changes on children’s visual access to their caregivers’ faces during an in-lab play session. In a cross-sectional sample of 4–20 month old children, we found substantial changes in face accessibility based on age and posture. These changes may translate into changes in the accessibility of social information during language learning.
