Note: All educators and parents interested in the role movement plays in early language development may want to look into the research of Dr. William Condon. “The most subtle micro-movements of a listener are precisely synchronized with the syllables and even sub-syllables of the speaker. The listener is, in a sense, part of and one with the speaker.”

Dr. Condon’s work is a major contribution to all interested in learning how each child’s bodily movements uniquely link to their language environments beginning in utero and continuing throughout their life.
