The New Guidelines on Screen Time for Preschool-Aged Children: The Importance of Interaction in Early Language Acquisition.

In a world where "screen time" is rapidly increasing, how we interact with our children is changing.  We will present the revised guidelines on digital media use from the America Academy of Pediatrics (released October 2016) with a focus on the impacts of screen time on the development of language in the preschool years. 

This session presents an overview on screen time and speech development, and would best meet the needs of families and/or professionals with little to no knowledge of, or experience, with this topic.

This session is presented by the Community Education Service of the Child & Adolescent Addiction, Mental Health & Psychiatry Program (CAAMHPP) of AHS in partnership with Preschool Speech and Language Services, AHS. 

This FREE program will be presented via videoconference in the Meeting Room of the library.   No registration is required.
