Better use of nonverbal cues while talking to toddlers ages 14 to 18 months was linked to improved vocabulary at age 4.5 years, according to a recent study. While the amount of parental talking varied depending on socioeconomic status, researchers said there were no differences in the use of nonverbal cues, indicating that speech quality is an "individual matter."
