The Importance of Language and the Science of Brain Development
Words are the building blocks of a child’s brain. The more words a child hears, the faster their vocabularies grow, the higher their IQ scores and the greater their reading comprehension, spatial and math abilities. A dearth of words during the critical years of a child’s development (from age 0 to 3) can prevent that child from ever reaching his or her full potential. By tuning in, talking more, and taking turns with their children, parents can help close the achievement gap, one child at a time.
