Infant Communication & Education

An infant will say word-like utterances, appear to follow conversations, and stop to look at you when his or her name is used.

Child will vocalize words on a daily basis, understand about 50 words you say, and put objects in and out of containers.

Growing toddlers will begin to combine more sounds into two-word phrases, point to body parts, and make animal sounds.

Dramatic expansion in vocabulary skills occurs, speech is understood 75% of the time, and one-step directions are understood and completed with success.

Child’s brain activity and communication skills expand dramatically, they play cooperatively with peers, and use 2- to 3-word sentences.

Toddler takes turns in conversations on one topic for 2-3 minutes and understands two-step directions.
