    The development of vocabulary is important for:

    The stages of development of concepts and the expansion of the lexicon are the following:

      • Evaluation pages / Skill evaluation: this chapter includes evaluation pages for receptive language* and expressive language** (evaluation grid and test pages).
      • Choice of a concept: this chapter is dedicated to the choice of the concept to work on, adapted to the child’s age.
      • Examples of the concept: this chapter includes numerous activities that lead to understanding of the concept being worked on.
      • Following instructions: this chapter includes numerous instructions that enable the understanding and spontaneous use of the concept.
      • Closed questions: this chapter includes numerous closed questions that lead to the comprehension and spontaneous use of the concept.
      • Expression of the concept: this chapter includes expression activities (expressive language) that help the child start to identify the target concept and use it in a spontaneous and autonomous manner.
