Your Toddler’s Development – 12 to 18 months

This is such an exciting time as your child starts to take their first steps and say their first words! From 12 to 18 months your child’s vocabulary will rapidly increase and by 18 months you may even be having some simple conversations together. First words are usually difficult to understand and baby sign language can be a great tool to use (as well as spoken words) to help your child communicate before their words are clear.
