2. Milestones: Concepts/Answering Questions/Vocabulary
3. Speech Acquisition: Speech/Processes Disappearing by 3 Years/Processes Persisting after 3 Years
4. Early Language Development: Morphology/Pronouns
5. Phonological Patterns:
WHY THESE CHARTS ARE IMPORTANT:
Thanks to researchers and clinicians who have provided us with invaluable information over the years, we know that typical speech and language development follows a predictable progression. SLPs must familiarize themselves with the steps in this progression to provide the most effective therapy for clients and to give research-based information to their families.
The Life of an SLP is action packed and time is scarce. These pocket charts provide this important information at your fingertips.
Phonological Awareness is the ability to manipulate the structure of an utterance independently from its meaning. It is an auditory task that requires an individual to manipulate the utterance at the word, syllable or sound level.
Phonological awareness skills develop from syllable, to onset-rime, to phoneme. These skills begin at age three and continue through the development of early reading skills at ages six and seven.
Knowledge of basic concepts is an essential component of language development. Basic concepts include terms that
describe position, time, equality, quantity and comparisons. These terms are commonly included in directions at home
and at school.
A child's expressive vocabulary grows rapidly from the time of his/her first word at approximately 12 months,
through first grade. Vocabulary increases throughout an individual's lifetime due to education, reading and life
In language development, a child must be able to ask and answer questions in order to navigate a conversation and to
seek and relay information. When assessing a child's ability to ask and answer questions, it is important to separate
their content knowledge from their ability to ask or answer questions.
Mean Length of Utterance Based on Brown's Stages of Language Development
For English-speaking children, the mean length of utterance (MLU) is a fairly reliable predictor of the complexity of their
Morphology is the study of how morphemes are put together. A morpheme is the smallest meaningful unit of language.
Grammatical morphemes apply inflection that signals meaning to nouns, verbs and adjectives.
There is no clear-cut progression for the acquisition of pronouns. however, most linguists agree that I and it are the first
pronouns to emerge, followed by you. Research also indicates that children use most subjective and objective pronouns
by three years of age and possessive pronouns by age five.
The pocket charts are sturdy, laminated and 3 x 5 1/4".
