Talking is Teaching – Approximately 80 percent of a child’s brain is formed by age 3, and a parent’s words are an influential part of that development. The more words children hear spoken to them by parents and caregivers from birth, the more words they learn. They can then become better communicators with others, and are better prepared to read and learn.

Is your child reaching their developmental milestones? Parents or caregivers can use the Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ) to check a child’s general development. The results help determine if a child’s development is on schedule. Parents or caregivers can also use the Ages and Stages Questionnaire: Social Emotional (ASQ:SE) assessment to check your child’s social emotional development.
