2 RUNNING HEAD: Advancing Development Compiled Advancing Development Cognitive Under 5 When dealing with cognitive development it is routine and important for a physician to know the developmental progress of the child. Many cognitive issues can be identified and addressed through understanding the precursors for the issue. In this paper I will focus on the cognitive limitations and developments that affect communication, self –help and social skills among toddlers. The cause of these impairments is unknown, but could be and not limited to brain injury, hearing loss, learning disabilities, genetic conditions or a brain abnormality. [Oud15]The more aware the parent is about their child’s development the better chance the parent has at equipping their child with skills to overcome the deficit. Language and cognitive deficits that go undiagnosed or untreated put children at risk for poor academic, social, and vocational progress later during their school years.[Fra07] Language development begins to rapidly flourish during the beginning stages of toddlerhood. It is unclear what the pattern is, but the sentence length increases and the ways children intermix words, called syntax, steadily increases, actually it doubles each month. [Rob091] At the beginning of preschool children will be using plurals and possessive forms of nouns, past tense, and articles. They are curious and full of questions. The simple question of why has now transformed into more complex sentence structuring. They can now answer and will never tire to ask complex questions.[Rob091] The concept of grammar has now begun to form as solid rules into their young minds as they are able to know the difference between correct and incorrect simple grammar.

3 RUNNING HEAD: Advancing Development Compiled It is not uncommon for children to have specific language impairments. They are unable to reach certain milestones. They have problems learning, retention and production of verbs compared with peers that are developing at an average rate.[Had16] It is often a concern for lack of verb development by the age of two. This can be a precursor for poor grammar later in life. It can also not be a concern but something to keep notice on as children can play catch up. Early intervention is ideal to ensure the success of the child academic career. Focusing on children’s verb growth is necessary to determine whether they are having difficulties structuring sentencing. Monitoring the child’s verb growth and sentence structure is important throughout their early preschool years. Assessment might be necessary to enlist the help of a speech therapist. It can also be a result of a cognitive delay, brain abnormalities, hearing loss, and or not limited to genetic conditions that need to be further diagnosed and treated by a specialist.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
