Question description

Sonia came to the 2-3 room in your child care setting. She just turned 2. She did not speak any words and only babbled. Sonia was very active. She ran from one center to the next, many times disrupting the other children's play by taking the toys away or knocking them on the floor. She came from a different center, but had only been there 2 months. Mom told your associate that Sonia had just started to babble about 1 month ago. The teacher reported that mom was hard to understand because she had an accent. The associate did not know what kind of accent it was. The office was still processing the paper work so you are unable to look at it currently.

In a 3-5 page paper discuss the following:

Where is the child currently in her language development? Defend your reasoning with research.

What would you do to help this child develop her language skills?

Discuss how culture may be affecting the child's language development.

Discuss how you would support Sonia's cognitive development in your classroom.

Be sure to include hi-tech citations, a reference page for your research and a title page in APA format

undergoes different stages of development. During the pre-linguistic stage, the child has the

capacity of controlling the sounds of words she produces and the words are done in a vocal way.
The child has no capacity of manipulating the sound with the use of proper words (Owens,
Where is the child currently in her language development?
Sonia belongs to the two-word stage. At this stage, Sonia has started developing complex words
that form a complete form of thought. The child at this stage she is able to define items placed
before her as well as personal belonging. Additionally, the child is able to combine two words at
the same time. During the two-word stage, the child is only able to use two words at a time. They
are therefore able to put words in an order closely related to a normally formed sentence. The
two-word stage is the period when the child is able to combine two words while making a
sentence leading to simple forms of phrases (Owens, 2015). Some of the examples of phrases
used by the child include, ‘shoe on’, ‘mommy go’.
