Language development in children starts at birth and continues throughout school and beyond. If you need to learn the "nitty gritty" of language development, please read expressive language, receptive language, pragmatic skills, and speech development first!
It is critical to understand all the components of language before you can start to create a language-rich environment for your child!
Why is language so important? Well, communication is embedded in EVERY aspect of life.
For example, academic learning, reading, writing, friendships, behavior development, and self-expression all depend on language abilities. If when we aren't talking, we are still communicating!
What if your child is not a natural language learner?
Well, if you have been to my site before, you already know my answer...
Your child receives “school-like" learning in school, during specialized interventions, and through completion of homework assignments.
After all the homework is completed, you can still foster language development in children through daily routines and games.
