Speech and Language: Developmental Milestones

Parent Teacher Conference Handout

Speech and Language: Developmental Milestones

Introduction

There may be times when parents become concerned with the developmental milestones of their children. Since many parents do not have a frame of reference this Parent Teacher Conference Handout will provide that reference for language development. Speech and language are tools that humans use to communicate or share thoughts, ideas, and emotions. Language is the set of rules, shared by the individuals who are communicating, that allows them to exchange those thoughts, ideas, or emotions. Speech is talking, one way that a language can be expressed. Language may also be expressed through writing, signing, or even gestures in the case of people who have neurological disorders and may depend upon eye blinks or mouth movements to communicate.
