In this Feb. 3, 2014 photo, caseworker and home visitor Stephanie Taveras, left, reads a book with Ashley Cox, center, and Cox's 16-month-old son Jaiden, right, at the family's home in Providence, R.I. The city has begun an effort to boost language skills for children from low-income families by equipping them with audio recorders that count every word they hear. During home visits, social workers go over the word counts with parents and suggest tips to boost the child’s language skills. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)
