Understanding the Language Development of Your Child
Age 0–6 is the most sensitive period for language acquisition. Language learning has three phases: oral, writing, and reading. The oral language sensitivity period is from birth to 3 years of age. It starts when a child hears the sounds spoken around him/her and progresses as they learn to form words and short sentences.
The optimal age for learning to write is 3.5–4.5 years. From 4.5 to 5.5 years old, a child is fascinated by reading. Reading requires visual tracking skills, which are generally developed after writing.
Immerse your child in a language-rich setting to boost language development. This means communicating clearly, singing and reading with a child, listening, and "broadcasting" a child’s needs back rather than anticipating or doing things for the child. At PCA, we provide this carefully designed progressive environment to build self-confidence, independence, and language skills.
