| Communication Development
0 to 3 months
| At this stage of ages, communication development will be made through different types of noises, face expressions and movement. For a new born baby, the only way for communicating is crying. There are many different types of cries they will do to tell you they’re hungry, in pain, their wet, cold or feel like their lonely and in fear. When the child tries to stalk, they will make babble noises and try to copy the same sound you make for e.g. Boo, they will go ooh. They will also try and hold their hands out to tell you they want picking and cuddling or just to play with them. He or she will smile when she hears your voice or when you make funny faces.
| 3 to 6 months
| When children reach these ages they will start to practise talking on their own, trying to say the words you say to them. They will find this funny by hearing their own noise. When trying to say the words you say for e.g. mamma, they will start of by saying ma, then they will start to add words on to that by saying ma da oh, ga, la etc. The children will start to let you know if they want to carry on playing with you or don’t want to play with you by crying or holding their hands and kicking their feet. They will also use hand gestures to tell you what they are interested in playing with, or the sound they hear etc. He or she will watch your face expressions on the way you communicate with them and they will try and copy the face expression you did with their types or words.
| 6 to 9 months
| When children reach between the ages of 6 to 7 months they are making two syllable sounds like mama, dada, bubba. Start following simple instructions what adults give like “wave goodbye” or “give mamma a kiss”. Will be able to follow and sing to a sound to show people they like the song and take interest my moving their head side to side, clapping their hands, whilst trying to sing along. Start to learn different sounds animals make and try and copy them....
