Abstract

Speech is one of the most obvious indicators of the child's development when he enters school. The five-year-old child should be able to do the following when he enters Kindergarten: a. Express his needs and thoughts in short sentences. b. Use a vocabulary of meaningful words when speaking of common every-day experience. c. Enunciate and pronounce words clearly enough to be understood, not using baby talk. About this same level of achievement should be expected of the six-year-old who has not had Kindergarten.
