Infant's language exposure involves many face-to-face interactions with caregivers. these provide at least two types of visual cues that are related to speech: the mouth gestures that are synchronous with the sound, and the situation in which the speech is being uttered. Infant are sensitive to correlations between auditory and visual input, and use them to try and find structure in their environment. The aim of Sophie ter Schure's research is to investigate how visual information influences infants' perceptions of speech sounds, and thus their phonetic development.
