Understanding Language Development

  • Use the powerpoint in the webinar and the link below to create, in your own words, how people acquire language.

    Start with a baby and work your way up to fifth grade. It can look like a series of paragraphs or a bulleted list for each age/grade.

    Be creative in your presentation! A proficient score will have speech (and, later, writing) milestones at each age from 3 mos. to 5th grade.

    Advanced will have a section about how language acquisition can be delayed or interrupted (through diseases or trauma) during some of these stages.
