Beyond the World Gap

ZERO TO THREE announces Beyond the Word Gap, a new multimedia web portal designed to provide parents, professionals, and policymakers the resources to close the word gap and support early language and literacy.

Beyond the Word Gap highlights the critical role that close, nurturing relationships with trusted adults play not only children’s early language skills, but all aspects of development.

Beyond the Word Gap features resources in both English and Spanish, and includes mobile apps, interactive online tools, videos, infographics, podcasts, policy materials, and more.

A key feature of Beyond the Word Gap web portal is ZERO TO THREE’s new, free app, Let’s Play!, which provides parents and caregivers easy, fun ideas for engaging babies and toddlers during daily routines, emphasizing the importance of making all activities a language-rich experience.
