The Starling is a wearable word counter that can improve your child's language 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!
