They cannot and will not be listened to and will be deleted after they are processed. My child and people around my child will be recorded during recording days.required
LENA Start is made up of 10 weekly sessions about 60 minutes long. If I am accepted and begin the program, I will attend sessions as scheduled, or arrange a makeup session if I have to miss a session. In order to graduate, I understand that I must: 1. Attend (or make up) all the first 4 sessions and at least 3 of the next 6 sessions 2. Turn in at least 6 LENA recordings required
