Let's Talk: 2 to 3 Years

Between the ages of 2 to 3 years, your child’s vocabulary is growing daily. She’s becoming skilled at speaking in short sentences. And though she probably won’t be able to pronounce all her words clearly, most people should be able to understand at least half of what she says. This video demonstrates some of the milestones your child should reach by age 3, and some simple ways that you can support his or her growing communication skills. Concerned about your child’s speech and language development? If at any stage you have concerns about your child’s communication development, don’t hesitate to talk to your healthcare provider or your local health unit.
