FREE Lexical Development Norms for English

Useful!

This gives the age normed vocabulary for many common words understood and used by

typical infants and toddlers so you can see if you are targeting words that are not

developmentally appropriate, and conversely missing those that are.

Thanks to Wayne Fisher, Ph.D., University of Nebraska for pointing this out.
