Learning to remember and then say the names of two things
Why is this important?
Verbal understanding can be likened to a ‘list’ of things that need to be remembered in order to carry out a task. For example, in the two-word level instruction ‘Give Sam a cup’, the child has to remember ‘Sam’ and ‘cup’. If children can’t do this, it may be that their auditory memory is not yet sufficiently developed. Auditory memory can be improved with practice.
