Speech and Language Development Milestones – 7 years old

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.
