Communication, Language and Literacy - Infants (Birth to 12 Months)
"Baby talk" might be the most adorable learning tool ever! As your infant grows, you'll soon notice he or she understands many more words than they can say. That is because babies learn the meaning of words and other forms of communication first. Remember that, until they have the words, their only way to express themselves is through crying, gesturing and facial expressions. Pay close attention to what your baby is trying to communicate and respond accordingly.
