THE MILESTONES OF SPEECH AND LANGUAGE.
Almost every baby book and text on language development has a discussion on the milestones of speech and language development.
And well they should, for these milestones are a road map to the awesome processes of maturation and learning that occur in those early formative years of life.
These milestones, furthermore, provide information about the normalcy of a child's development--an issue every parent and educator is concerned with. And perhaps most importantly, they expose windows of opportunity that offer chances for parents and educators to optimize the development of language and cognition for each child.
Although the following discussion is about these milestones, I have included in the Notes below some additional interesting Web sites which discuss these milestones.
NOTES: Some further information on Milestones.
