Say & Play with Words is an initiative to raise awareness and improve vocabulary for children ages birth to five in the Louisville area. Take advantage of these resources to prompt using words with an infant or young child.

Our Louisville initiative featured various local faces in a Word of the Week ad campaign to encourage families to talk with their children using common words. Watch each one with your child and use them throughout the day.


Parent and Play Groups

Say & Play with Words Louisville has partnered with Bloomberg Philanthropies and LENA to provide group activities for Louisville families with children under 3 years old. These groups meet weekly to engage and learn ways to interact with their children. Data is collected and reviewed weekly to help families increase and improve their conversations and interactive routines with their children.

Learn about these groups and how to join.
