Research tells us that many adults believe that literacy begins at 2 years of age, often when the child is beginning to use understandable speech. However, much development has happened prior to 2 years of age so that the child is able to utter understandable words. From the moment of birth, the baby instinctively responds to language, eye contact, touch.
