Study: Talking To Toddlers May Boost Their IQ

A new study has found that early conversation with children is linked to better language skills and higher IQ scores when they get to school. The study — published in the Journal of Pediatrics, tested two groups of toddlers aged 18 to two-years-old. One group heard words from adults while the other group actually had conversations.  Those same children were brought back for testing when they were 9 to 14 years old and scientists found the toddlers who engaged in back and forth conversation had higher IQ’s and vocabulary scores.
