Special Issue: At what age should we put babies on a digital media diet? : The Digital Media Diet

Source: digitalmediadiet.com

I have long enjoyed The Digital Media Diet that can bring research and perspective on young children’s learning in the digital age. They bring thought provoking questions and research on the subject.

In my workshops and posts I have referenced the guidelines of the American Pediatric Academy for screen time for children- resulting in interesting discussions and reflections on exposure and use. In this article The Digital Media Diet addresses screen time guidelines and provides a developmental perspective on that. This information is an important perspective for OT’s and teachers to review and consider as we use the technology for children with developmental challenges.

An interesting read from The Digital Media Diet, thanks for keeping us all informed!
