Year Level: Year 1 & 2

This milestone poster/sheet details the speech and language developmental milestones for 7 year olds.

Designed by speech and language pathologists, the speech and language milestone sheets provide a list of typical milestones that should be attained by specific ages. In the event that a child is not demonstrating what is expected for their age, it is recommended that a speech pathologist is consulted. The sheets also include specific causes for concern and suggestions for parents within the home.

While PLD no longer offers a clinic, the following download may be useful when seeking specific information from the school or the early childhood service for the speech pathologist: Observations of a student to accompany a referral to a SP. The following implementation booklet outlines how PLD speech pathology designed programs can be applied to schools.

  • Connecting Oral and Written Language – Step 1
    From $65.00$65.00 incl. GST
    Speech and Language Development Milestones – 7 years old

    Instructional material outlining how to teach 6 to 8 year olds narrative oral retelling, rewriting and generation.

    Although there are many types of genres, the most complex genre is narrative. The production of a narrative is more cognitively and linguistically demanding than participation in a conversation. Research repeatedly reports that narrative programs positively impact overall reading comprehension and written expression ability. Hence once skills are developed in this area, there is a flow on effect to all other forms of comprehension and written work. Within Connecting Oral and Written Language – Step 1 the initial oral stage is incredibly important. From a Speech Pathology perspective, oral expression ability is the precursor to written expression ability. Too often students are required to generate narratives before solid foundation skills are established. Remember students need to be provided with multiple opportunities to analyse and orally retell familiar narratives. In this way, they are rehearsing and practicing their oral language skills and simultaneously developing a solid understanding of narrative structure. Remember do not underestimate the value of the initial oral stages of narrative skills development. This program, designed by Speech Pathologists for 6 to 8 year olds features: Narrative tasks are presented in an order of ascending complexity (i.e. pre-narrative, oral narrative retells, written narrative retells and finally narrative generation). The manual outlines how to instruct 6 to 8 year old narrative ability and recommends over 45 suitable picture books. The classroom pack includes explicit narrative structure cards and display posters There is a follow up resource – Connecting Oral and Written Language – Step 2 for 9-12 Year Olds.
