At around the age of 48-60 months, typically developing children start to understand and to say sentences using the word “when” as a subordinating conjunction. “When” means “at or during the time that” or “after which; and just then”. Used as a subordinating conjunction, “when” helps link ideas by reference to time.
Some people – including people learning English as a second language, and people with developmental language disorders – have difficulty understanding and using “when” in complex sentences. This 22-page pack is designed to help them, with scaffolded examples using both pictures and words to support people with a range of different needs to learn the word in sentences.
