Language Milestones

Language milestones are the natural progression of a child acquiring a new language. Milestones are identifiable language skills and abilities, with general age periods when a child is expected to display them.

Language milestones are ‘markers’ that can help you track your deaf child’s language development. You will know when your deaf child’s language development is falling behind. This helps you decide if you need to consider different ways to support your child in acquiring language.
