Developmental Milestones

Check your child’s stage of development and learn the signs of developmental delays.

Developmental milestones are age-specific skills in a child’s growth, such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving "bye bye.” If a child is not meeting certain speech, cognitive, motor, or social milestones, this would be something that parents and their pediatrician should note and monitor.  If milestones continue to be missed, it is considered a “red flag.”  A red flag is an indicator that further evaluation may be needed to determine the presence of a neurodevelopmental disorder and the need for early intervention to help the child further their development.
