Language

Language development occurs when toddlers add new words to their growing vocabulary. From age one to three, children will learn 1,000 to 2,000 new words. As your child approaches age three, his language skills will become more fluent. Therefore, it is very important for parents to engage in continuous language exchanges with their toddlers. For example, talk while doing things and going places, and expand on basic words your toddler says. If he says “car,” you should respond, “Yes, that is a red car.” These types of activities and reinforcement build your toddler’s language skills.
