What the Expert Says:

2-year-olds start to show an understanding of the rules of language by putting words together. At this age they produce more than 50 words, follow 2-step commands, point to objects and name them, and use words to request things.

Two-to-Three Year Milestones



At 2 years the child
    * uses simple sentences
    * refers to self by name
    * puts words together into noun-verb sentences (want cookie, see car)
    * refers to self by name
    * listens to short stories and identifies actions/characters in the book
    * asks "what's this?" or "where's my---?"
    * identifies body parts, clothing items, common objects and actions
    * follows simple two-step commands
    * comprehends terms that are opposites
    * has a spoken vocabulary of up to 300 words
    * uses the word 'no,' which signals a shift in the child's sense of self in relation to others and in his desire for independence
