10 Ways to Promote the Language and Communication Skills of Infants and Toddlers

Early language and communication skills are crucial for children’s success in school and beyond. Language and communication skills include the ability to understand others (i.e., receptive language) and express oneself (i.e., expressive language) using words, gestures, or facial expressions.

They also are less likely to have difficulties learning to read and are more likely to have higher levels of achievement in school.
