Children’s physical growth is measured by their height and weight, but growth also involves developmental skills and activities.
Learning to read and write is a developmental process that emerges from experiences early in a child’s life.
No two children develop exactly alike, but there are stages that can help guide you through looking at your child’s development.
Literacy development begins at birth. Learning to talk, listen, read and write are skills that develop from experiences early in a child’s life, and it all begins with relationships. Early literacy does not mean early reading! Early literacy skills are the foundation for learning to talk, listen, read, and write, which are connected throughout all growth and development.
