Early Language Development

Information and tips

Children learn to talk though hearing and seeing others, and this starts very early, even before birth.

As with all areas of children’s development we have typical milestones for children when they are learning to talk.

Usually children’s understanding develops before their talking, so we expect young children to be able to understand more than they can say.
