Let’s talk about talking!!!
There are 2 components of speech; receptive and expressive.
Receptive language means the ability to understand information. It involves understanding the words, sentences and meaning of what others say or what is read. Expressive language means being able to put thoughts into words and sentences, in a way that makes sense and is grammatically accurate. .
Some important developmental milestones of speech for the child’s first year included:
Birth-3 months: - responds to loud sounds by looking (receptive)
- coos and makes pleasure sounds (expressive)
4-6 months: - laughs or giggles (expressive)
- notices that toys make sounds (receptive)
7 months to 1 year:
- understands word for most common objects “cup, “ball” (receptive)
- says one or two words (expressive) .
It’s important to remember that all children develop at different rates, they often excel in one area and linger in the others at times but eventually it all catches up. However, if you’re starting to notice a pattern and are concerned that your child is not meeting their milestones, it is important to speak to your pediatrician or a developmental expert. If you have more questions or are interested in an assessment feel free to give us a call for a free consultation. Getting treatment early on, is very important and can make a huge difference in their life!
