Introduction
The process of learning is of immense importance in the life of a human being, because it is the ability which allows a human being to make informed choices throughout his life time. Unfortunately, there are wide range physical factors, which can be impeded in the learning process, these factors can be ranging from impairment of the senses to basic nutritional factors, these are all the factors which hugely affects the ability of a human to learn effectively. The relationship between communication, Language and their development is deeply involved in order to make us human. The evaluation of language development is aim to establish the level of capability and skills possessed by the children. First word that is spoken by the infant shows the starting of the infant’s language development. However, first word usually spoken at the age of twelve months. Theoretical Context
According to the theory of Jean Piaget who was a famous physiologist, described that there are four stages for the cognitive development among young children, among which the one which he emphasized the most on is the learning of language in young children. In his theory he expressed that children do not think like adults, so in order to develop the practice of learning language among young children it is immensely important that they must actively construct their own understanding of the real world through their interaction with the real world and its environment.

Hence it helps in the development of the concept of cat, and afterwards the child learns to map the word Kitty.
Language is the one and the only human cognitive and mental activities, along with many cognitivists believe, which specifies that language emerges from the context of many other general and cognitive abilities which includes, attention, memory, along with problem solving as all these things play a major role in the overall intellectual development of a young child. According to good luck, once after the emergence of language it usually develops in the form of stages through which a children passes throughout his lifetime, and all these stages are in a fixed order that is universal among each and every child. He further states that there is a reliable order of mastery, which one of the most common functions in a language in which most of the ideas are expressed. This is the reason why Piaget’s theory states that, it is the language which reflects the development of a logical thinking along with the reasoning skills in a child, and each period consist of specific age and name…
