Speaking/ Consulting

In a world of fake news and information overload, I strive to translate research with a focus on balance and facts. Audiences include industry, parents and educators. I’ve given keynotes to independent schools and public school districts, spoken at academic conferences, and shared my expertise on the science of how entertainment media affects kids across the country. I also consult on these topics for a variety of companies and give talks for executives and at staff retreats.

Yalda received top ratings from almost all respondents. She went above and beyond in partnering with us to bring this program to the parents and educators of the community. She enlightened us with research-based facts (much of which she has conducted) of how media is affecting the well-being of children and offered informed and insightful recommendations of how to strike a balance and set limits. The buzz has been overwhelmingly positive and we are so thankful to her for helping us start this very important dialog in our school district. ~ Morristown Educational Foundation.
