New Device ‘Starling’ Keeps Track of Kids Use of Words, Exposure to Language

Sufficient exposure to spoken language is a significant parameter for healthy development of young children. Also, kid's own word usage is a important sign and can point to whether the child is progressing mentally.

Now a new device called Starling can count how many words the child says and hears throughout the day. Why is word tracking important? Because research tells us that early vocabulary development can impact your child's trajectory for life.

The clip-on tracker pairs with the parent's smartphone and keeps a lifetime score since the device was first used.

The device not only gives you personalized information and analytics for your child, but it also suggests activities to help make sure your little one is on track to reach for the stars!
