BabySound

Online Survey “BabySound”:  What Do Infants Prefer Listening To?

We are all surrounded by sounds, but we like some sounds more than others. But which sounds does your baby prefer? Together, we can find out about this by carefully observing changes in your child’s behaviour while listening to a sound. And this is exactly what we do in this study!

Who Can Take Part?

Babies between 4 and
8 months old, together
with 1-2 adults

                

How Long Will It Take?

15-20 minutes

                

What You Need:

• smart phone
• laptop with camera
• internet connection

 

What We Will Do:

  1. Information and consent
  2. Questions on age, gender and hearing/visual impairments
  3. Short video clips of babies reacting to sounds
  4. Get into a good position for the task
  5. Set the volume of your phone
  6. Hear 20 sounds and report your baby’s reaction
  7. Questions about your baby's daily behaviour
  8. A fun sound quiz!

We are currently in the initial phase of the study where we try to optimize instructions and procedure for better feasibility. Therefore, we are asking parents to video record the session. We will provide links and comprehensive instructions for both recording and uploading the video.
