Read what to expect as your child grows.

Every child develops differently. How do you know if your child is on track? What should you do if you have concerns about how your child is developing? Find answers to these questions and more below.

Developmental Milestones and Screenings

How do you know if your child is developing as expected?  Developmental milestones tell us ways that children should speak, act and learn by certain ages.  When children are on track it is time to celebrate.  When you are concerned your child is not reaching developmental  milestones, it is time to get more information.  Developmental screenings are one way to get more information.  A doctor, nurse, educator, trained community professional or parent can complete a developmental screening on a child. All children should be screened at 9, 18, 24, 30 months and every year after that.  Developmental screenings can catch developmental delays and disabilities early so children get the support they need.
