Talk Spot

A Talk Spot is anywhere you can communicate face-to-face with someone.

This could be in the car, at the dinner table, in the community centre, at the mall, in the park: anywhere you can talk without the distraction of a screen. As SLPs and audiologists, we know the risks associated with excessive screen time for kids, yet 85 percent of Canadian children under 5 spend more time on devices than suggested guidelines. For young children, this can lead to significant language delays and even lifelong learning difficulties.
