Does the amount of time that a child spends watching videos or playing games on electronic devices elevate their risk for developing an expressive speech and/or language delay? This session will elucidate the risks and negative associations involved with excessive exposure to screen time and its influence on the development of appropriate speech and language skills. A basic definition of screen time will be identified. Alternatives to executing appropriate utilization of screen time will be represented. A digital language processing tool that outlines how to assess the negative impacts of screen time on speech and language development will be explained.
