Milestones Matter

From birth to age 5, your child should reach milestones in how he or she plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves. You do not need to wait for a doctor’s referral or a medical diagnosis to have your child’s growth and development screened. Many providers can assist you in completing an Ages & Stages Questionnaire or assist you in identifying a resource that can provide a developmental screening:

Resources:
