Quigley, Jean and McNally, Sinéad (2013) Mother-infant interaction corpus: Infant siblings at risk of autism spectrum disorders and typically developing infants. [Dataset]Full text not available from this repository.
Project specific information
These are transcripts of the infant directed speech of 10 mothers to their typically developing infants from age 3 to 12 months and 8 mothers to their 9 infants at risk of autism, defined as having at least one older sibling diagnosed with autism. Each transcription relates to a single session of 5 continuous minutes where mother and infant were engaged in face-to-face interaction. All mothers spoke Hiberno- or Irish-English.
Only maternal vocalisations and speech addressed to the infants are transcribed. If the infant vocalised or interjected this is included in the comment line on occasion but actual vocalisations are not trascribed. Information on relevant activity on the infant's part is provided in the comment line where it contextualises mothers' speech. All songs, nursery rhymes, jingles, routines, and onomatopeic sounds are transcribed.
Participants gave informed consent for the use of their data and real names have been replaced by pseudonyms throughout.
History of Project
The title of this project is: Mother's Infant Directed Speech (IDS) in face-to-face interaction with normally developing infants and infant siblings (SIBS-A) of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, aged 3 to 12 months. This was a longitudinal project funded by the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences (IRCHSS). Funding was awarded to Dr. Jean Quigley under a Research Development Initiative grant scheme in 2009.
