 Screen-Based Activities Cannot Replace Learning Through Personal Interactions

Direct interactions with family members are crucial for infants' development, revealed a new study. The researchers found no scientific evidence for benefits of iPad or DVD programs. They suggested that such screen-based programs in fact might even cause language delays.

Dr. Hugo Lagercrantz, author of the Acta Paediatrica article, said, "The neurons in infants' brains are busy processing input involved with sensing, seeing, and hearing, and imitating facial expressions, recognizing family members, and formulating language are all important aspects of development. External coupling of the brain to technology cannot replace these direct multisensory interactions."
