||The Role of Breastfeeding in Developing Literacy
The first 1,000 days of a child’s life is full of incredible developmental potential. Every child is born with the capacity to learn. But within a few short years, an achievement gap can be seen. Are there steps we can take at the beginning of the child’s life to prevent this gap? Join Marie as she talks with Dia Michels about the first 1,000 days, and the importance of the word gap—the differential in the number of words children in different socioeconomic groups hear during this time, a chasm of over 30 million words a year. How are the word gap and the breastfeeding gap linked? Tune in to find out strategies parents and health care providers can take to narrow the achievement gap.
