Developmental Milestones

Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving “bye-bye” are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move (for example, crawling and walking).

Children develop at their own pace, so it’s impossible to tell exactly when a child will learn a given skill. However, the developmental milestones give a general idea of the changes to expect as a child gets older.

As a parent, you know your child best. If your child is not meeting the milestones for his or her age, or if you think there could be a problem with your child’s development, talk with your child’s doctor and share your concerns. Don’t wait. (from Developmental Milestones)

As you start out on your journey in advocating for your little one, one important step is organizing the paperwork that you are receiving about your child. This may also include using documents to record your child’s development or responses to treatments or interventions. With a system in place to organize the right documents, it will be easier to find the information you need to share with professionals and make decisions about what your little one may need.
