agnosed with autism. In this case study, half of the total adult speech in the child's environment on the therapy day occurred during the two hours of treatment clearly demonstrating the efficacy of the treatment regime.

These case studies provide a glimpse of how the LENA System can be used to monitor and improve the effectiveness of autism therapy in clinical and home settings.

The LENA System offers the opportunity to:

  • Capture the natural language environment of the child in terms of adult word count, conversational turns, child vocalizations, and amount of TV exposure

  • Take advantage of the monitoring ability of LENA to fully understand the complexities of the child's audio environment
  • Use valuable feedback on parents' word counts and conversational turns to enhance treatment
