How can reading to my child help with development? - Emergent Literacy

How can reading to my child help with development? - Emergent Literacy | Young children with special needs | Scoop.it

"How can reading to my child help with development?

 

Studies have shown that in most cases, the highest level high school and college students were read to as young children. This is due to the fact that reading aloud helps children develop language and vocabulary before they start school."

Deborah McNelis, M.Ed's curator insight, February 6, 2013 12:12 PM

The brain is experience dependent. That means, a child must be exposed to language to be able to make the brain connections for using language. The brain develops most language skills from birth to the age of three. When children are talked to frequently during these early years, the result is a better vocabulary and a higher level of language and reading ability overall.
