Ways to make doctors visits less stressful. Summary and Graduation
We use a special “talk pedometer” created by our partners at LENA. Children wear a small device for a day that measures talk without recording actual words or conversations. Then, parent educators can show parents when and how much language they are using with their children, and parents can deliberately increase interactive talk based on what they learn.
The LENA recording device doesn’t hear or understand specific words or conversations, so your privacy is never in question. It simply picks up on different sounds and tones of voice, counting adult words as well as back and forth communication between adults and child. It works in both English and Spanish.
Science shows that the first 5 years of life are when the brain develops the fastest. We partner with organizations like Vroom to equip parents with the tools and resources needed to foster healthy language development.
