The Tech Effect: How Too Much Device Time May Be Taking a Toll on Today’s Children [video]

toddlerThe use of handheld devices is now common among toddlers and nearly universal among teens. New research shows that too much device time may be detrimental, especially in the areas of communication, language development, attention span, school performance, and hearing problems.

See the research highlights in this short video sponsored by the  National Association for Hearing and Speech Action (NAHSA), the consumer affiliate of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.  Identify the Signs aims to educate the public about the warning signs of communication disorders.

Speech, language, and hearing disorders are treatable and early detection is a major contributor to speedier recoveries, shortened treatment periods, and reduced costs. Visit the  Identify the Signs website to learn more about the signs of a language disorder and hearing loss.
