Language Development Milestones
What should I expect of my child?
Research strongly indicates that children with delayed speech and language skills are more likely to have poor literacy skills.
Below are some general guidelines of what to expect of your child’s speech and language development. Please be mindful that this is not an assessment.
Feel free to print out the checklist. Alternatively, use the interactive feature provided to send us your child’s current skills and request our feedback.
If you would like to book your child in for an assessment or have any queries, you may ‘submit’ your completed checklist. This will provide us with some preliminary information about your concerns.
Each spoken word or short phrase is accompanied by its own pattern of muscular movements. All the information necessary for speaking a phrase like "How are you?" is stored in the brain, in the speech area.
