ABOUT

Actionable feedback for the adults who matter most.


Why LENA?


LENA is based on the belief that parents, caregivers, and teachers have the ability to unlock every child’s social, emotional, and cognitive potential. We focus on increasing interactive talk because it has been proven to be a key factor in early brain development – and we focus on the earliest years because research points to those as the most critical. The feedback we provide helps parents and teachers measurably increase talk and conversations with children. The results are stronger families, improved classroom quality, and children more prepared to succeed in school.

What is LENA?


LENA technology is the industry standard for measuring talk with children birth to three, a critical factor in early brain development. (LENA stands for Language ENvironment Analysis.) Used all over the world, LENA's programs for parents and teachers will support your initiative to build early language and literacy, to close gaps in cognitive, emotional, and social development, and to improve school readiness.
