Is my child’s language development on track? It can be hard to know for many parents. Especially for parents of bilingual children.
You may be comparing your child with others and wondering whether your child’s language development is normal or you should be worried.
Many of the numbers you will find are averages. Children from different language backgrounds can learn languages differently.
If your child does not have a certain skill at a certain age, it does not mean that your child has a language disorder. But if your child is developing much slower than the age range, it is always good to investigate further. Early intervention it is!
Bilingual children may know fewer words than monolinguals in their languages. But their TOTAL VOCABULARY SIZE (in two or more languages) is usually like monolingual children’s vocabulary size. Also, bilingual children may know different kind of words in different languages. For instance, they may know home-related words in the home language and school-related words in the majority language.
