As parents we are constantly striving to provide the best for our children to ensure a happy, healthy and successful future. From the time we first hold our tiny miracle we are continuously worried about their growth and development. Shouldn’t they be walking by now? Does my child talk and listen like other children? Why can’t my child read like his sister?
All children are unique individuals and develop at different rates with different strengths and weaknesses. So how is a parent to know when it is time to take action? As their parent you know your child best.
Below are developmental milestones that can help guide you in making your decision about whether or not to take further action to determine if early intervention is needed for your child.
As always, at the Children’s Center for Growth and Development, phone consultations with our specialized speech and language pathologists are available to help guide you in determining next steps and are free of charge.
