Speech-Language Development is divided into three major parts in this handbook. These are essential parts of speech-language development and serve as windows into the development of the average child:

   1. Listening
   2. Vocalizing/Speaking
   3. Understanding and Using Language
   4. Interaction

Please select the part that you want to learn more about from the menu under Speech-Language.



Parent Note

There are individual differences in the ages at which infants achieve milestones in development, but these patterns generally appear to be the same. Even though skills usually develop in a predictable order, they may develop at different rates in different children.
