This hypothesis was first put forward by Penfield and Roberts in 1959 and posits that there is a period of particular brain plasticity related to both the stage of development and the brain area or system. Critical or sensitive periods are stages of development for particular parts or functions of the brain. They are windows of opportunity in early life when a child’s brain is exquisitle primed to receive sensory input and develop more advanced neural systems, through the limbic area and the cortex.

    4) immediate echolalia and delayed echolalia
    5) Jargon is when a child communicates verbally by making a series of speech-like sounds that give the impression of conversation, but that do not make any sense. This is typical till 1.5 years of age.
