A major part of the language learning happens in the early years despite the journey being a lifelong process. Brain development of a child in their first five years is usually at its peak. The high receptiveness of the child makes them able to learn many things through their experiences. It has been proven by studies that children learn languages when they are involved in back and forth interactions with important adults in their family. Any time a child communicates through gesture, a sound, or a word, the parent is responsible for giving a good feedback that motivates them to learn.
The language learning process of a child will benefit from a responsive feedback. The lack of communication of a child or less communication is due to the lack or receiving the essential feedback that would have built their language. Children will communicate less if their family members talk less or when the children are talked to less. Any communication gesture from a child should always be responded to by their adult family members. Otherwise, the child will have a delay in their communication development. Some parents are advised that if they wait, the child will outgrow this situation. The child’s language learning process in this critical stage is derailed by the wait and watch and watch approach.
Children can hardly participate in conversations and activities when they have not developed good speech. When the children do not get the help they require the situation becomes worse. Chances are the children will be left behind more. Extra support received by a child from the important adults in their lives improves their situation tremendously. If done very early, speech therapy intervention can help improve the situation. It enables the children develop skills through communication skills. It will help the child to be successful in their future academic and personal life.
