Gesture, comprehension, and language (1 of 1)

Describe the sequence of gesture and semantic development as it appears in childhood and note the timeline for the emergence of lexical and gesture production. Be sure to include specific skills the preschool child uses (e.g., fast mapping) and the learning theories that support the relationships you identify. In your response, detail the language developmental milestones that have been achieved and that the child is progressing toward.
