Developmental Milestones for Receptive Vocabulary

In this lesson, I talked about the milestones that have to do with understanding words and identifying body parts. These are important for you to know so that you know what is reasonable to expect from your little one.

This course focuses on nouns, with an emphasis on body parts, clothing items, and food items. My advanced course will be available to purchase at a special discounted price after you complete this course in full. You can look forward to learning higher-level skills – like teaching action words – in that course.

Before you move on…

Identify which of the milestones your child has achieved and see what’s coming next for them. This will help you as you’ll know better what to work on with them and what to expect.
