What do your observations lead you to think? Is this child engaged with literacy?

As an early childhood educator I was taught to recognize and look for child development milestones. This child exceeds my expectations of typical child development in the areas of oral language, memory and expression.

When what we see is out of step with what we think, how do we respond?
What is the role of checklists and developmental milestones when children do not meet, or they exceed our expectations?
