Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the activities and development of toddler Ricky when he was 15–16 months old. At this stage Ricky was able to use imitation as a learning device. He was able to use this learning strategy to hold conversation. This chapter suggests that imitation is an effective means for toddlers to stay in verbal contact with others, just like verbal signalling. Thus, Ricky can be considered to be doing a lot with a little.

Keywords: toddler; imitation; learning strategy; verbal signalling; verbal contact
