Creation of Fact Sheet on Language Development“Language development is among the most important tasks of the first five years of a child’s life” (Language Development, n.d.). In fact, language acquisition is a key component to learning across each domain of development. As early childhood educators, we are charged with the important task of not only fostering language development, but also of monitoring children’s progress, planning appropriate supports, and making accommodations when necessary. With the complexity of language acquisition and our varied roles within this system, it is imperative that we plan for, and acquire strategies to effectively promote language development in our students. As more and more children are diagnosed each year with speech delays and our population of English Language Learners is growing, we must come to our educational settings ready to confront this important domain of development. For this discussion you will choose a specific age-range (0-2, 3-5, 6-8), as well as which area of language development you would like to research and plan for. Choose from the options below:

Creation of Fact Sheet on Language Development: Children with speech delays

Initial Post: Once you have decided upon the specific area of language for your focus, you will create a fact sheet to be used within your education setting. To create your fact sheet you will need to do the following:

  • Locate one recent (within five years) scholarly article with research-based strategies for fostering language development in an early childhood classroom.
  • Using both the article and your textbook, you will create a fact sheet that can be used as a guide in a classroom or school. Your fact sheet should be no more than two pages in length and should include the following:
  • The language milestones for the age range you chose (Table 2.1 from your course text).
  • The characteristics of and influences surrounding the area of language you chose (i.e. culture, socio-economic influences, prevalence, etc.).
  • Explain at least four current, research-based strategies that can be used within a classroom setting. You are required to support each of your strategies from your chosen research articles.
  • Explain at least two current, research-based strategies for supporting families with children with these language concerns. You are required to support each of your strategies from your chosen research article and textbook.
  • Enhance the visual appeal of your fact sheet by including a minimum of three related images. As a suggestion, you can also include a page border, creative header, etc.

You will create your fact sheet in Word, Publisher or any other acceptable format, and then save it as a PDF for submission.

The word requirement for the assignments are specifically stated in the guidelines of the assignment. The word count is from the first word of the introductory paragraph to the last word of the conclusion paragraph. FYI.


1- There should be a cited reference for each section of a paper as there are conclusion statements in each section (to meet the grading criteria) so the conclusion should be supported by a reference as the assignments are evidence-based research, clinical papers.

2- Word Count- The word count is done from the first word of the introductory paragraph to the last word of the conclusion. The word count must be within the minimum and maximum word limit stated in the assignment instructions. A 10% – point reduction will be made in the total points for the assignment.
