Developmental Milestones

Developmental Milestones for Infants

The first year of an infant’s life is a time of amazing learning. Remember that every child is unique and will develop at his own pace. Use these milestones as a guideline to gauge how your infant is growing and acquiring new skills. If you think your baby has a developmental delay or a disability, schedule a check-up with your pediatrician.

Developmental Milestones for Toddlers

A toddler’s life, ages 12 to 36 months, is a time of amazing learning and development. Remember that every child is unique and will develop at his own pace. Use these milestones as a guideline to gauge how your toddler is growing and acquiring new skills. If you think your child has a developmental delay or a disability, schedule a check-up with your pediatrician

Developmental Milestones for Preschoolers

Use these milestones as a guideline to gauge how your preschooler is growing and acquiring new skills. A preschooler’s life, ages 3 to 5 years is a time of amazing learning and development. Remember that every child is unique and will develop at his own pace. Some grow faster than others, and some grow slower than others. If your child is slower or faster than on the brochure, do not get upset. Be patient. If you have any questions, ask your child’s doctor or nurse.
