Help Build Your Child’s Brain

August 17th, 2015

A new research-based book teaches parents how to prepare their children for success.

Author, Dr. Dana Suskind, founder of the Thirty Million Words initiative at the University of Chicago, reveals socioeconomic status and parent education are not the key components to a child’s learning ability. Dr. Suskind says its actually much simpler – parents should start having conversations with their child the day they are born.

The book is based on a 1995 study that found children who heard more words were better prepared to enter school. They had bigger vocabularies, were stronger readers, and got higher test scores.

In Thirty Million Words, Dr. Suskind gives parents a strategy to prepare children for success by tuning in, talking more, and taking turns.
