Ninety-seven percent of recently surveyed audiologists and SLPs noted concern about the effect of screen time and use of popular technology (excluding AAC devices) on children’s communication development. Top overall concerns included reduced opportunities for social interaction, impaired social development, and delayed speech or language development.
The survey was conducted as part of ASHA’s Healthy Communication and Popular Technology Initiative. For information about the initiative, visit www.communicationandtech.org. For more survey data, visit on.asha.org/tech-survey.
