Critical Analysis Example
Mary Beth stated her 19 month old daughter “Jill” seems to be delayed in her speech. She has a vocabulary of only 7 words and
tends to grunt utterances to communicate her needs to family members. According to the current research on language development, Jill’s verbalization are consistent with a 10-12 month old child (Berk, 2011). At the age of 19 months, specialists in
language development would expect Jill to have a daily growing vocabulary (15-20+ words per day) as well as communicate using two to three word utterances with a 300+ vocabulary (Caldwell, 2014). For example, Jill should be using sentences such as “Let’s go park” and “Love mine kitty.” However, Jill’s mother did not report these types of language or speaking abilities in Jill.
