Abstract thinking - using your imagination
Critical thinking - making clear, reasoned judgements
Understanding the world around us
Deductive reasoning - 1 + 1 = 2
Inference = the sun rose yesterday morning, it will do the same tomorrow

From the milestones pick the 1 you think is most important.
What area of intellectual development is it related to?

What sort of activities can parents do to help support intellectual development?
3 months - Infants make noises when they are spoken to.
9 months - Infants practise making sounds, repeating syllables like 'mum-mum' and 'dad-dad'. They begin to learn that the sounds their carers make mean something. They understand a couple of words, like 'no' and 'bye-bye'.
12 months - Infants know their own name and understand several words. They understand simple commands with gestures, like 'give it to mummy'.
15 months - Infants understand and obey simple commands, like 'Bring it here'. They can say a few words and understand many more.
18 months - Infants will try to join in with nursery rhymes. Soon after this they can put a few words together to make simple sentences.
2 years - Infants can use around 50 words and understand many more. They ask questions all the time, like 'Whats that?'
