As a mother of a toddler just a few months from approaching the 2 year mark, I wonder about his speech abilities. I’m confident about his understanding of words in conversations, but wondering why he doesn’t say more? To be clear – I’m not worried! I am comfortable with the fact that all children develop on their own timelines and should be allowed to do so without parent worry or judgement. But I am curious. There are other younger toddlers in the classroom who are “speaking” or at least copying a wider variety of words and words sounds. So, how do children learn to speak? Here are some ideas.
I have posted a link to the 1-2 year age mark for the families in my community, but there are links included for younger and older age groups.
