For Children 

12 - 24 Months

Between 12 and 24 months your toddler may be starting to say simple words, they are starting to understand more and may copy what adults say.

Let's Get Started
Eighty percent of your child’s physical brain development happens during the first 3 years. As their brain gets bigger, it also forms the connections it needs to think, learn, and process information. Talking to your child fires up those important connections in the part of the brain that handles language. The more words they hear, the stronger those mental connections get. That process can strengthen your child’s future language skills and their overall ability to learn. Of course, it’s not only your child’s brain that is important! Lots of talk from loving adults also helps to build healthy relationships and social skills. You are your child’s first and best teacher in matters of building trust, dealing with emotional and physical needs, and interacting with others in positive ways. All of these skills will be important for your child’s later success in school and beyond.
