Receptive Language Milestones for Toddlers

Here are my FREE lists of receptive language goals for toddlers and early preschoolers. Remember.... receptive language mastery drives expressive language development. When we're working with late talkers or kids with developmental language delays, we must treat the prerequisite skills before we can realistically expect to make progress. Receptive language is a prerequisite for expressive language. Kids must understand what words mean before we expect them to say and use them!

Receptive Targets Under 12 Months

Receptive Targets 12 to 24 Months

Receptive Targets 24 to 36 Months

Receptive Targets 36 to 48 Months

If you need ideas for working on these goals, I can help you with that! This list is from Teach Me To Talk: The Therapy Manual where you’ll find lists for receptive and expressive language milestones along with fabulous strategies and activities that WORK to help toddlers acquire each skill.
