The Power of Language
Talking and listening to your child is one of the best ways to support them during the critical brain-building years. Because language is foundational to all other areas of development, simple conversations (talking and listening to your child), reading, and labeling things in your child’s environment are some of the best ways to support their developing brain.
Highlighted below are certain language milestones or benchmarks that young children should meet at every age and how to help your child reach those goals. Like all developmental milestones, every child is different and hits these benchmarks at different times. Remember that every child develops at their own pace.
