Language Skills

Q. My child is starting pre-school soon. I’m not sure where he should be with language skills.

A. Preschoolers (age 3-5) often have a lot to say. They love imaginative play and are usually understood by peers and adults. As a general rule, 3 yr old children should be understood about 75%-100% of the time by unfamiliar listeners (Bowen 1998). They should be able to follow simple instructions, answer and ask simple questions, understand and use descriptive language and have a large repertoire of nouns and verbs. If you are concerned about your child’s speech and language, contact a Speech-Language Pathologist for an evaluation.
