Hey Tek-ninjas! Summer is winding down, even though it was 100 degrees yesterday. As we get ready for school all over the US, I thought I’d share this quote from SLP Jane Korston. Many of you have likely seen it, but I feel it’s a good reminder of the importance of modeling, modeling, and more modeling.
“The average 18-month-old child has been exposed to 4,380 hours of oral language at the rate of 8 hours/day from birth. A child who has a communication system and receives speech/language therapy two times per week for 20-30 minute sessions will reach this same amount of language exposure in 84 years.”
