The first three years of life is the most intensive period for speech and language development. Reading, talking, and singing regularly with young children from birth stimulates brain development. This stimulation in turn builds language, literacy, and a child’s motivation to learn. This webpage includes information about promoting literacy in pediatric primary care, resources for supporting families, and tools for practice.
