Language Nutrition and Early Literacy

or log in to view this course.

The best predictor of a baby’s future academic achievements is not parental income, level of parent education, or ethnicity, but rather the number of words spoken to the baby and the amount of time spent in active engagement from birth to 3 years of age. Just as food nourishes a growing child’s body, language interactions nourish a child’s brain. Presenter Dr. Jennifer Stapel-Wax will introduce the topic of language nutrition and share with the library community tips on encouraging early literacy development in communities.
