Talking to your babies could help them do better at school The rate at which children learn language varies substantially from child to child. Some children show rapid vocabulary growth before they go to school, while others learn so slowly that they can end up six months to a year behind their peers. Oral skills are a precursor to literacy, so it?s not exactly shocking that children at a linguistic disadvantage will have immediate problems with reading and writing in the classroom. What is probably less well known is that these problems can be long lasting ? so much so that they negatively and profoundly affect future academic success. Document

Teaching Babies to Pay Attention Scientists have known that infants? early learning experiences may positively affect later development through processes called ?developmental cascades.? For example, walking and fine motor skills have been associated with vocabulary size and later language development.
