We are all the same with the potential to learn which every language our parents use. However, that is not so “babies are born knowing a great deal about language.” In the article, the writer wrote “Babies don 't know beforehand which language they are going to be exposed to.
Conclusion Language is important but one needs to know that there is more to language than sounds and words. In the first place, equivalence stimulus is important to be able to see the reaction that both stimulus are different but react the same towards each other and RFT gathers all these in an umbrella that reinforces language and
Erikson has discussed human is development throughout his stages. Humans undergo many changes such as behavioral, biological, and cognitive. In each stage kids go through development stages to help them create their personalities and actually know the person they are growing up to be. These stages go into details with learning new things whether we are ready for it or not. Each stage explains the positive and negative attitude for each individual; however we attend to learn from every stage to become the person we are today.
Lev Vygotsky provided many contributions to development that impacted what we know about how children learn and the kinds of environment that should be provided for optimal development of language. Vygotsky believed that the environment provides children with information that supports language development. Similarly, he theorized that language begins with communication between children and individuals in their environment. He developed the Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) which is the distance between what a child can do independently and what a child can do with support from an adult. Therefore, the main role of an adult is to help children bridge the distance between what they can do independently and what they can do with some support.
DEVELOPMENTAL MILESTONES 6 DEVELOPMENTAL MILESTONES Developmental Milestones in a Three Year Old Infant Using the Denver II Developmental Screening Tool Claudia Aguilar Keiser University Normal Development in a Three Year Old Infant According to Brazelton (2001), after surviving the “terrible two’s”, we have to start getting prepared for a preschooler, his constantly “why’s” and all of the magic that comes with this age; starting with the fact that child finally listens to you, paying more attention to what he is being told and letting his imagination fly and run wild. The author mentions different areas where development can be clearly noticed, such as the language area, by the child’s ability to say his or her name and age, also being able
The nature of children 's language development and stages of language development is very important. A child 's language skills will go hand in hand with the development of physical, mental, intellectual, and social. Therefore the child 's language development is characterized by a continuum that moves from the sounds or simple utterance to the more complex speech. According to Tarigan (1998) there are two basic rules that allow a child can acquire language skills, that are potential biological factors which are owned by the child, as well as social support
From birth through to adolescence, children progress through five main stages of growth and development. ‘Infancy’ covers between birth and one year old, ‘early years’ from one to three years, ‘childhood’ from four to seven years, ‘puberty’ from eight to twelve years and ‘adolescence’ between thirteen and sixteen years. Whereas growth is a measurable increase in the size and weight of a child’s body, development is the continual acquirement of skills and knowledge within all aspects of a child’s life. The main areas of development are social, physical, intellectual, language and emotional, and although children follow a similar pattern to progress and reach developmental milestones, the rate at which this occurs may differ between children
Vygotsky suggested that the child learns language in social interaction and then thinks in terms of that language. However, Vygotsky emphasized the importance of both history and context in the meaning each unit (word) of that language has in the thinking of the individual. Language plays an important role in a child’s development (Gredler, 2009). According to Vygotsky, children use speech not only for social communication, but also to help them solve tasks. Vygotsky (1962) further argued that young children use language to plan, guide, and monitor their behavior.

They have developed their own word for an object or person and use it consistently. They then go on to using a single word to express several meanings by changing the sound and using gestures. As they grow children gradually put two words together to form a mini-sentence. Stages of language and communication development from birth to 7 years can be understood through the chart
Interactions between an adult and child during the early years are vital for their development and learning, as they are still grasping day-to-day skills and understanding new life concepts. Children learn and develop their language and literacy skills through interactions with others; they begin by absorbing, listening and then imitating and practising (Buckely 2003) Learning environments that promote language and literacy development are environments which expose and encourage children to interact with various forms of print. Behaviourists such as Skinner (1953) argue that language acquisition and development are learned through observation of behaviours in their social environment; these behaviours are then practiced through imitation by the child. Children learn through imitating what they see others do or how they behaviour, play is the most important learning tool for children to construct meaning of these behaviours.
A noteworthy topic discussed by author Michael Schwalbe in Chapter Five of his book The Sociologically Examined Life: Pieces of the Conversation is the importance of language acquisition in the early stages of one’s life and its sociological effects on society. Schwalbe leaves out the specific details of when exactly children/infants start to develop their language skills, however, it is important to note that most start to speak (i.e., voice their first word and/or phrase) at around the age of twelve months, with cooing and babbling happening in earlier months. These developments are all provided the children have been given the proper environment that allows these advancements to take place. If the child is isolated, however, as Schwalbe
