Let's Talk: 3 to 4 Years

The year between the ages of 3 and 4 is an exciting one! Your child’s ability to communicate takes a giant leap during this year. By the age of 4, your child’s grasp on language allows him to express his needs and feelings clearly... which means that there may be less frustration and fewer tantrums caused by communication breakdowns. This video demonstrates some of the milestones your child should reach by age 4, 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.
