"Talk to Me!": Oral language development with young children (2012)

This document focuses on the importance of oral language development and offers tips for parents to use to help their children develop language skills. The authors explain that children develop language over time and tell parents what to expect at each stage from infancy through the preschool years.

Parents can encourage language development by listening when their children speak; asking them questions; and using correct words and complete sentences.

The authors also describe some of the warning signs suggesting that a young child is not developing appropriate language skills and encourage parents to contact a health professional about any concerns.
