Learning to Talk Apps, Games, and Websites

Learning to talk is one of the most important milestones in young kids' development. Watching little ones go from baby babble to their first words and basic sentences is an exciting phase for parents and loved ones. While the AAP warns against too much screen time for toddlers, once your child is ready for educational screen time, these apps and games can help jump-start their development and inspire them to get chatting. These high-quality learning tools introduce vocabulary and language skills in fun, age-appropriate ways. For additional resources, try these Letter- and Word-Recognition Apps, Games, and Websites.
