Welch, S. A.; Mickelson, William – International Journal of Listening, 2020
Rather than focusing on age distinctions, a more organic approach in understanding individual differences is the life-span perspective (Williams & Nussbaum, 2001) which posits that more understanding is gained from studying individuals from a behavioral approach than from age distinction. Using this life-span perspective approach, this study…
