    Did you know that childhood is a crucial period for not only speech language development but for building cognitive development?

    During times of today when screentime is at an all time high, social communication skills, motor planning, and attention difficulties are being experienced by children worldwide like never before.

    This summer, monitor your child’s overexposure to screen time and encourage your child’s participation in routine physical activities.

    Scientific studies show, children who are more physically active have increased chances of demonstrating improvement in the following areas:
    -focusing capabilities which include joint attention- coordinating one’s attention with others, attuning to stimuli and structured tasks presented for uninterrupted durations of time
    -memory recall- retrieving information and/or experiences from the past
    -emotional regulation- contributes to one’s ability to respond to the ongoing demands of experiences and process a variety of emotions; monitoring, evaluating, and modifying emotional reactions
    -executive functions- contributes to one’s ability to select and monitor behaviors that can facilitate the accomplishment of one’s goals
    -social communication skills- interacting with others whether it be verbal and/or nonverbal communication in addition to understanding why and how one communicates

    Improvements in all the aforementioned areas can yield to higher academic performance.

    Doing research for an upcoming presentation, Ethical AI in Speech Therapy: Harnessing the Future with Responsibility, and came across this.

    "The $20 million, UB-led initiative — funded in January by the U.S. National Science Foundation and Institute of Education Sciences — will create artificial intelligence systems that ensure children with speech and language disorders receive timely, effective assistance."

    "Since then (April, 2023) researchers have begun lab researching and building prototypes of two AI systems: the AI Screener, which will identify potential speech and language impairments by listening to and observing children in classrooms; and the AI Orchestrator, which acts as a virtual teaching assistant to SLPs by providing students with ability-based interventions."

    AI is here and can be a positive or negative for speech therapy. What do you think of programs replacing speech-language pathologists?
