Typical Stages of Speech Language Development:
How does speech typically emerge, and what should you expect to hear as your child grows?
According to speech language and hearing sciences, how children acquire languages is mostly a… mystery!
At Academini, we know that most typically, children learn language in predictable stages and at predictable ages, but within these parameters, there is a wide range of variability. Our curriculum embraces every child’s uniqueness, and helps them progress at their own comfortable pace.
Their spoken vocabulary will grow by leaps and bounds, they will begin to put two words together and demonstrate what they know. Simple two-word combinations will reveal not just the words they know, but also the concepts they are learning.
Children at this age will also begin to engage in simple pretend play, like attaching words to their play in meaningful ways. As they do so, they will also start producing questions and other statements that start to sound more grown up.
At Academini, as infants move into the toddler phase, their day takes on a more uniform schedule.
At this critical stage, early childhood is precious and mustn’t be eroded by too stringent a focus on ‘academic’ learning. Our staff will intervene by integrating the new interactive state of the art technology-based learning into our curriculum. “Smart Board” emphasizes on hands-on approach to learning, using touch screen visualization, mixing and matching numbers, letters and objects.
