Let's Talk: 18 to 24 Months

By 18 to 24 months of age, your child’s vocabulary and communication skills are rapidly expanding. He’s learned more words and is beginning to put them together to make short sentences! This video demonstrates some of the milestones your toddler should reach by 24 months of age, 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.
