LENA Team / May 20, 2020

New neuroscience research shows us that the first five years of a child’s life are the most critical period for brain development, when the foundation of all language and literacy skills are built. Recognizing this, school districts around the country are increasingly investing in the early years to give children an equitable start long before kindergarten. We’re excited to explore this topic in a webinar with Jim Duggan, supplemental interim superintendent at Bourbonnais School District 53 in Illinois.

Implementing a new community program: What we’ve learned in the first five years of LENA Start

LENA Team / Jan 29, 2020

In 2015, we launched LENA Start, a program for families that provides regular feedback from LENA technology to help increase adult-child interactive talk. Along the way, dedicated local partners have helped us to refine the curriculum, improve implementation, and evaluate success. In this webinar, Partner Success Manager Laura Camp will discuss lessons learned with panelists from two early partner organizations, Iowa State University and Huntsville City Schools.
