Helping Your Toddler Acquire Language
First language acquisition and development varies widely from person to person. It is not uncommon for an 18 month old to only speak a few words while another speaks in full sentences. While development within this range is not necessarily a determining factor of overall intelligence or future potential, early language acquisition can make a huge difference to a child who may otherwise become frustrated by his inability to communicate his thoughts and feelings.
I recently came across a blog in the Montessori Bloggers Network titled, Five Montessori Language Tips for Toddlers that I thought I would share. It does a nice job of giving highlighting the key steps to filling an infant or toddler's life with rich vocabulary to enhance language learning.
