Storyboard Text

  • Language Development: Mile Stones
  • Infants begin with babbling and gestures, consisting of crying and cooing
  • Babies cry as early as birth. Cries signal all different types of things
  • Ba ba ba
  • Babbling are strings of consonant-vowel combinations. This can sound like "ba ba ba"
  • Babies first coo at about 2-4 months. Coos are gurgling sounds made in the back of the throat
  • Babies do not usually speak their first word until 10-15 months
  • But, they have always been communicating. Through gestures and their own sounds. Most prevalent at ages 8-12 month
  • First words include those that name important people such as dada. Or familiar things such as kitty
  • But at around 2 years or 18 months they can speak about 200. Their rapid vocal is called: Vocabulary Spurt
  • The amount of words they can speak is always improving
  • At 18 months they can speak about 50 words
  • Kitty, Chair, Lunch, Cookie, Thanks, Love, Milk, Eye, Car, Feet, Hand.....
  • They are also seeing a rapid expansion of understanding words
  • Although too young to comprehend grammar, they use Telegraphic Speech
  • For example, "Daddy give candy"
  • When children at 2 they are using "two word utterances"
  • This is the use of short, precise words without grammatical markers
  • for example "My cookie" or "Where kitty?"
