http://www.einstein.yu.edu - When do babies start talking? In this video, you will see and hear developmental milestones in speech during a child’s first year—from the very first sounds to first words. Babies start communicating much earlier than you may think. Einstein speech-language pathologist Nancy Tarshis shows parents what to expect, how to encourage communication, and what to do if they are concerned that their child has a developmental delay. She also goes though the stages of baby talk for those who want in-depth information. Yes, there really is a “goo stage.” Recommended for parents and for child development professionals. Ms. Tarshis is supervisor of speech and language services at the Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center (CERC) at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
