Research has shown low-income parents tend to speak less with their children than affluent parents resulting in a “word gap”. As shown by Providence Talks, “participating families receive free access to a “word pedometer” and bi-weekly coaching from trained home visitors. The “word pedometer” filters out television and background noise and develops a comprehensive picture of a child’s daily auditory environment, including adult word count and the number of conversational interactions the child engages in during the course of the day.
