Children should hear 45 million words in the first 4 years of life, but some only hear 16 million. Kids with language delays are 4 times less likely to achieve the expected standard in reading, writing, and math. Having a poor vocabulary doubles the chances of being unemployed as an adult.ABOUT SPEECH BLUBS: 👈2 years ago we created an app where kids teach kids to speak. Now, more than half a million parents across the U.S have downloaded the app and are helping their kids. Even non-verbal kids on the autism spectrum have said “mama” for the very first time. We are grateful and humble and want to express our gratitude. Our wish is for every child to have an opportunity to learn, and every parent to have the tools they need to help their kids fulfill their potential.THANK YOU & GOOD LUCK✌️🤞🥰🏆

Speech Blubs is responding to an article published in 2003 by Betty Hart and Todd R. Risley that showed the gap in vocabulary acquisition in children from different backgrounds. The results were staggering as they reflect a 30 million ‘word gap.’

The article states, “In four years, an average child in a professional family would accumulate almost 45 million words, an average child in a working-class family 26 million words, and an average child in a welfare family 13 million words.”

This research has been criticized and also replicated many times. It also gained attention in 2014 with president Obama emphasized this nationwide crisis. As the White House stated in its blog, “the ‘word gap’ […] can lead to disparities not just in vocabulary size, but also in school readiness, long-term educational and health outcomes, and earnings even decades later.”

Early language acquisition determines the child’s academic and life outcome.

60% of young offenders have low language skills.
