Child Development

Developmental Milestones describe a pattern of human development that children can be expected to follow.  Each child will develop in their own way, however, being able to recognize “milestones” can assist parents in recognizing their own child’s pattern of development and provide guidance for assisting children through the developmental process. 

The CDC’s website provides information regarding Developmental Milestones and some tips for parents about what to do for children at each stage of development.

You can access the CDC website regarding Developmental Milestones here: http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/actearly/milestones/index.html
