About us

LENA is based on the belief that all parents have the ability to unlock their children’s social, emotional, and cognitive potential. We focus on increasing interactive talk because it has been proven to be a key factor in early brain development – and we focus on the earliest years because research points to those as the most critical. The feedback we provide helps parents improve talk and conversations with their children. The results are stronger families and children more prepared to succeed in school.

Our system is used worldwide to measure early language environments for research, intervention, and clinical use. Our methods are clear. They’re measurable. And they work.

What is LENA?
The LENA System™ is the industry standard for measuring talk with children birth to three, a critical factor in early brain development. Used all over the world, LENA will support your initiative to improve early language, to close gaps in cognitive, emotional, and social development, and to improve school readiness.
