Starling Word Counters

What is a Starling?

The Starling is a wearable word counter that can improve your child's product_starlinglanguage absorption and development. The device counts the number of words your child is exposed to every day and provides parents with real-time feedback on how they're doing. The Starling works in any language, features a 4 day battery life, and is water (and drool!) resistant. Your conversations will remain completely private; Starlings do not make any recordings.

Newton Public Library patrons can borrow Starling kits using their library card. The kits check out for 3 weeks and include the wearable word counter, charging dock and cords, and instructions for use. All you need is a mobile phone or device and the free mobile app!
