Issue 50 | June 2018

It is vital to monitor the development of babies and children during their first few years. While some say it can be easy to recognize speech development/delay, it is equally as easy to miss it.

Here are some of the developmental ques that you should see in a child as he/she grows:

  • Infants respond to voices and will start to coo in the first few months.
  • baby
  • At 6 months, they usually have a variety of sounds.
  • At 9 months, often you hear some basic consonants such as “dada” and/or “mama”.
  • At 18 months, they should be able to say at least 6 words.
  • At 2, they should be able to various words into two-word sentences and will be about 50 percent understandable to strangers.
  • At 3, others will be able to understand about 75 percent of the conversations and
  • At 4, they should be 100 percent understandable to strangers which preps them for school

This is a great time to rest and relax after working hard for the past few months. The mid year break is also a good time to review and build up skills that are needed for the second half of the school year.
Quick Tips

Ways to encourage your kids:

Owl Tips
  1. When your child starts to babble, repeat the sounds your child makes. This will encourage him to babble more. Keep this up for a fun “conversation” with your child.
  2. Children are always curious about the world around them, so look out for non-verbal signals, such as what he is looking at or what he is holding. Use such opportunities to engage your child’s interest in verbal communication.
  3. Get your child to repeat words before you give him an item of interest. For example, during snack time, get your child to say words like “mum mum” or “cookie” before you give him the biscuit.
  4. Children learn through imitation, so interact and play with them to encourage them to talk. Don’t leave them alone with an iPad or in front of the TV.
  5. Avoid long, complex sentences. Use short, simple sentences, but stress specific words. For example, when you say, “this is a blue ball”, put more emphasis on the words “blue ball”.
