During the third year of life, important changes occur in children’s self-regulation and linguistic abilities. Language is considered a key competence that affects other domains of development; for example, good language skills enhance cognitive regulation. Cognitive regulation appears early in the first year of life, with simple forms of response inhibition (Diamond, 1990; 1991), and develops in the second year, enabling infants to control their own behaviour. This study aimed to explore the relationships between emergent self-regulation and language in the third year of life. The results show a significant pattern of correlations between self-regulation measures and phonological development, vocabulary composition and syntax indices.

Abstract

During the third year of life, important changes occur in children’s self-regulation and linguistic abilities. Language is considered a key competence that affects other domains of development; for example, good language skills enhance cognitive regulation. Cognitive regulation appears early in the first year of life, with simple forms of response inhibition (Diamond, 1990; 1991), and develops in the second year, enabling infants to control their own behaviour. This study aimed to explore the relationships between emergent self-regulation and language in the third year of life. The results show a significant pattern of correlations between self-regulation measures and phonological development, vocabulary composition and syntax indices.
