Other Developmental Milestones in the Talker

Encourage your child to play with blocks, puzzles and name-games. These activities will help your child achieve the developmental milestones.

Your child now imitates others actions, particularly those of adults and older children.

You might notice resistance and aggressiveness in his or her behaviour.

Your kid acts independently and gets excited in the company of other children.

Development of Learning, Thinking and Problem-solving Skills

By age 2, your kid is able to identify different shapes, colours and body parts and can name objects in a picture book such as “toy”, “cat”, “bag”, etc.

He or she can follow two-step instructions. For example, "pick up the ball and keep it in your toy basket."

Your kid will now be able to complete sentences and recite rhymes.

Your child plays make-believe games and builds a tower using 4 or more blocks.

Physical Development

Your child is more active and has begun to run, walk up and down the stairs and stand on tiptoes.
