Get started with LENA programs!

Let’s talk data.

LENA is a national nonprofit on a mission to improve the lives of young children by putting powerful data on early talk and interactions into the hands of their families and teachers. Offering caregivers an objective picture of how much they talk with children gives them the opportunity to recognize where they are, reflect on their behavior, and feel tangibly successful when they make improvements. Children who experience more talk and interaction thrive, rapidly gaining the language, literacy, social, and emotional skills they need to enter school ready to learn.
