At 4 years of age, can your child:
- Talk in
- Be understood by most people?
- Talk about things that have already happened?
- Engage in a three or four step sequence of pretend play?
- Ride a trike or big wheel?
- Use the toilet appropriately?
- Change from one activity to another without frequent emotional struggles?
At 5 years of age, can your child:
- Use complete sentences with 5 or more words?
- Pronounce most words correctly (except those with S, R, and TH)?
