1000 Days in Gap City: Exploring the Relationship Between the Breastfeeding Gap and the Word Gap

Each child is born with the same capacity to learn as the next, however not every child lives up to this potential. Can we tackle this ever-widening gap at the beginning of a child's life? We can by focusing on the word gap, the differential in the number of words children in different socio-economic groups hear in the first 1000 days; which equals over 30 million words a year. We will explore not only different ways healthcare professionals can help families overcome the word gap, but also demonstrate the very real connection between the word gap and the breastfeeding gap.

This lecture was originally offered at our 2017 GOLD Lactation Conference.

Abstract:

Each child is born with the same capacity to learn as the next, however not every child lives up to this potential. Can we tackle this ever-widening gap at the beginning of a child’s life? We can by focusing on the word gap, the differential in the number of words children in different socio-economic groups hear in the first 1000 days; which equals over 30 million words a year. We will explore not only different ways healthcare professionals can help families overcome the word gap, but also demonstrate the very real connection between the word gap and the breastfeeding gap.
