The Wordy Repertoire Of Children

image

By age three, children have a repertoire of 300 words. By age four, 1000 words. By age five, 6000 words. That’s what we learned from Dr. Lydia H. Soifer, Ph.D. at today’s Wonderplay™ Early Childhood Conference, which we liveblogged throughout the day.

You can access all the information we shared, on our Storify page. And here’s another eyeopener, from Dr. JoAnn Deak, Ph.D: “By the time kids are five, 50% of their time is spent on video/visual input. The brain isn’t designed for that.”

Thanks to all our the learning professionals, leaders in education, child & family development, researchers and audience—at 92Y and online, who made today so successful. We’ll have the complete webcast available for viewing online, soon.
