Apps ‘don't affect children's language development' if parents still read stories
Apps ‘don’t affect children’s language development’ if parents still read stories

A study from the University of Salford and Lancaster University, published in the Journal Of Children And Media , has found that as long as parents or carers spend time reading with young children, and this time is not reduced in place of television or touchscreen devices such as iPads, children's exposure to these media should have no effect on the size of their vocabulary.
