Many language milestones occur in the first two years of development from prelinguistic language to cooing, babbling and first words. Think about all of the milestones that take place in two years while watching the following video from the North Carolina Rated License Assessment Project: Language for Learning: Infants and Toddlers. The video demonstrates many ways early childhood educators can use strategies to facilitate early language.

Choose one strategy and discuss what you learned about how this strategy facilitates early language in the infant and toddler.
Give a specific example NOT discussed in the video and how you can expand on the use of this strategy. Can this strategy be used with all children and families from a variety of cultures? Why or why not?
